Colorado is home to thousands of artists, artisans and creators of all kinds – musicians, potters, painters, to name just a few. Twenty-six Colorado cities have state-certified Creative Districts, and today we’ll talk about what those creative districts are, and how they benefit the communities they’re located in. We’ll hear from a state official and the North Fork Valley Creative Coalition, and we’ll pay a visit to Ridgway’s Creative District.  On the Western Slope, creative districts are also found in Grand Junction, Telluride, Carbondale, Salida and Steamboat Springs.
