In communities across Colorado, we see that cultural vibrancy results in economic and social vitality. For businesses, partnering with the arts is an ideal way to recruit and retain a workforce, enhance their brand, foster creativity and collaboration, and strengthen overall community cohesion.

Join Downtown Colorado, Inc. (DCI) and Colorado Business Committee for the Arts (CBCA) to learn more about why the arts and creative industries are important to economic development and community health, especially in rural and mountain regions, as well as the individual business case for supporting and partnering with the cultural sector.
