To All Involved in our Creative Community:
We need to hear from you!
Your input is critical to advancing plans for a new, creative space facility in downtown Ridgway, CO. A facility where creatives and creative organizations and businesses can have affordable space in which to live and work, create, teach, learn, practice, showcase art/creative products, conduct business and engage with the public. See our sidebar for how we broadly define creatives, our definition of creative organizations and businesses and examples of who we hope to hear from.
The Town of Ridgway has been selected, through a competitive process, as the location for the second creative facility to be developed under the Space to Create program, the first state-driven initiative in the U.S. for affordable space for creatives. To learn more about the partners behind the Space to Create, Colorado initiative, please click on the logos below.
In September 2016, a series of focus groups were held to elicit feedback from the community that will be used to begin planning the project. The focus is now on obtaining critical information from local and regional creatives and creative organizations and businesses about your specific space needs and preferences, through your participation in the survey linked below. Data and input from the survey will help us refine the plan for housing, studio, and creative-use focused commercial and office spaces, including number, type and size of spaces, design features, amenities and affordable rent structures. It will also help inform business plans of those who may want to offer and operate specialized shared creative spaces and programs that serve your needs, all without duplicating other efforts or programs in the area.
