CBCA’s Arts + Industry Forum Series aims to educate, inspire an inclusive dialogue, and cultivate partnerships and innovative approaches to society’s significant challenges, such as climate change, healthcare, affordable housing and real estate, accessibility, and transportation.
CBCA offers engaging discovery sessions that bring together experts and stakeholders from a variety of arts and business sectors. By fostering a community dialogue, these forums highlight timely issues, inspire action and raises awareness on how arts interact and influence specific industries. The goal is that the Forums will help foster innovative business solutions and a more collaborative society, one where scientists, engineers, bankers and real estate developers are working with designers, creatives and artists for positive social change. These events also shed light on how businesses can further their economic opportunity development through arts partnerships, as well as foster cross-sector understanding and collaboration.
Each forum explores the intersection between the arts and a distinct business sector relevant to Colorado’s economy. In 2020, this Arts + Industry Forum Series will explore Arts + Hospitality, Arts + Agriculture, and Arts + Transportation.
The three 2021 Arts + Industry Forum topics will be relevant to our social, political, and economic environment. The first two Forum topics are Arts + Environmental Sustainability, planned for the second quarter, and Arts + Wellness, slated for the third quarter.
