Colorado Creative Industries awards $1.3M in grants to arts organizations

DENVER — Colorado Creative Industries, a division of the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade, has awarded $1.3M in grants to 180 arts organizations in Colorado. The grants went to groups in 47 counties and represented an increase from the 162 grants awarded in 2015.
CCI was established to boost the creative sector’s ability to enhance economic growth. Forty-seven percent of grant funds went to organizations located outside of the Denver metropolitan area. Grants are awarded annually on a competitive basis.
“The state is experiencing healthy growth in the creative economy, due in large part to combined state, local and regional efforts to advance support for artists, non-profit arts organizations, and creative place making efforts,” said director of Colorado Creative Industries Margaret Hunt, in a prepared statement. “We applaud the talented and hard-working groups that contribute to our state’s vibrant economy and, just as importantly, to our amazing quality of life.  We are glad to support their work with the Colorado Creates grants each year.”
The grant awards are for activities that take place between Oct. 1, 2016 and Sept. 30, 2018. A list of this year’s grant recipients in Boulder, Broomfield, Larimer and Weld counties is below, with a complete list of grants awarded statewide available online.
