- The Broomfield City Council has designated the local creative economy as a priority for cultivation and development. The creative economy places value on imaginative qualities throughout the business, education, and creative and culture sectors, and the entire community. As Broomfield grows, developing the creative economy increases the overall vitality of the city and increases quality of life for residents.
- To support the creative economy in Broomfield, Creative Broomfield, in collaboration with city-wide support, is working to develop a program to connect both creatives to each other and to the wider community. This program, the Creative Network, supports the development, cultivation, and celebration of the creative economy in Broomfield, broadly defined as individuals, organizations, businesses composed of creatives, makers, learners and doers.
- The Creative Network is currently in the development phase, with pilot projects launching in the coming months. Learn more below about current and future initiatives, programs and resources.
Community feedback and conversations are critical to the development and success of the Creative Network. Interact with ideas, future phases and pilot programs on the Creative Economy hub on the Broomfield Voice!
Coming soon, these quarterly events will bring together the creative community to share, learn and experience what Broomfield has to offer for artists, businesses, organizations and the community as a whole.
Looking for a call to artists or have a great program or project and curious if there’s funding support available? Learn about grant support from the City and County of Broomfield and beyond!
The Broomfield Arts & History (A & H) team envisions itself as a connector and partnership-builder, rather than a content creator. As such, we sought to learn more about Broomfield-area arts and history organizations and to arrange in-depth conversations with key leaders of these non-profits. With the goal of building connections rooted in expressed community and organizational needs, the A & H team adopted Appreciative Inquiry interviews as its primary method to structure these conversations.
The Curatorium is an exploration of empowering a collaborative of artists, organizations, businesses and community members to design and implement creative events and experiences in Broomfield.
