Creative and Arts Market Survey - Grand Lake, Colorado

Welcome Grand Lake Creatives, Artists, and Makers!

Your input is critical to advancing plans for a new, creative space facility in Grand Lake, CO. A facility where those involved in the creative industries (artists, creatives, arts educators, arts administrators and people who make things and those who keep alive cultural practices) can have affordable space in which to live and work, create, practice, and share with the public all year round. See our sidebar for how we broadly define who's involved in the creative industries!

Grand Lake, CO Arts Market Survey

Grand Lake has been selected, through a competitive process, as the location for the fourth 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.

If you are engaged in creative pursuits and consider that work to be a form of art, craft, a cultural or creative expression or heritage preservation, then we probably will too. Many creatives don’t even think of themselves as artists. A member of the creative sector:

  • Has a sincere commitment to their creative-based work
  • May make things that are artistic, creative or functional or all of the above! (woodturners, milliners, potters, writers, leather workers, artisanal foods/craft beverages, painters, performers, photographers, jewelers, floral arrangers, stylists)
  • May be engaged in any creative/artistic/cultural pursuit (visual/performing, culinary, literary, musical, administrative, educational..)
  • May or may not make any income form their creative-based work (or may or may not aspire to)
  • May or may not create or practice full time (or may or may not aspire to)
  • Has or is developing a body of work or is actively training or working in their field
  • Comes from any and all walk of life

This study is made possible with the generous funding and support from:
