Advocacy is speaking up for something you believe in. At CBCA, we believe that art is smart for business; that the creative industries are essential to Colorado’s economic prosperity; and that cultural vibrancy strengthens community vitality.

CBCA engages in ongoing community education to advance these beliefs and foster a network of arts supporters in the business and civic sectors. CBCA also brings awareness and influences decision makers on policies and initiatives locally, statewide and nationally that advance the mutually beneficial relationship between arts and business.

Share Your Input on Colorado’s Arts Advocacy Platform

Please take this Community Input Survey to share your honest feedback about Colorado’s arts, culture and creative industries. This survey is part of a broad community input process, which will inform the creation of a statewide arts advocacy platform. This platform will define priority areas for future arts advocacy efforts. The Survey (en español) should take no more than 4 minutes.  Thank you!
