Arts Districts, Economic Development, and Creative Industries in Rural Colorado
The economic role of arts and the potential for arts-related activities to benefit communities culturally, spiritually, and economically has been growing year by year, taking a front seat during the recent pandemic. The state of Colorado’s Certified Creative District program has played a prominent role in promoting the arts as an engine to drive economic development, launching programs such as Space to Create Colorado, a one-of-a-kind real estate development program focused on affordable living and working spaces for artists in rural communities, as well as the new $65 million statewide Community Revitalization Grant Program. This session explores the resulting impact in creating real estate opportunities, building infrastructure, and fostering economic development in rural and small municipalities throughout the Western Slope.
Presented by John Clark, Mayor of Ridgway, Colorado, Margaret Hunt, Director of Colorado Creative Industries & Space to Create in the Governor’s Office of Economic Development, and Chantal Unfug, Director of the Division of Local Government, Colorado Department of Local Affairs (DOLA)
Moderated by Meredith Badler, Deputy Director, Colorado Business Committee for the Arts (CBCA)

Financing and Fundraising Arts in the Real Estate Context: Where’s the Money?
Developers, civic leaders, communities, and arts organizations increasingly have recognized the importance and value of arts for the evolution of communities, especially in rural areas. However, as always, challenges arise in connection with funding these arts aspects of real estate and community development. This session focuses on the players in this arena and the types of resources being brought to bear, by addressing the critical question, “Where’s the money?”
Presented by Margaret Hunt, Director of Colorado Creative Industries & Space to Create in the Governor’s Office of Economic Development, Douglas M. Price, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of Citizens State Bank, Chantal Unfug, Director of the Division of Local Government, Colorado Department of Local Affairs (DOLA)

Gentrification, Local Communities, and Inclusion of Historically Marginalized Communities
There can be no conversation about developing and creating new opportunities for arts in the real estate context without including diversity, equity, and inclusion issues, such as impacts on the community history, diverse populations, and changes to local economies. Learn about case studies from the Denver metro area regarding the impact of an arts district on land prices; the resulting challenges to creating affordable housing and limiting, or at least mitigating, involuntary displacement; and what it means as an attorney or real estate broker representing landowners and developers to meaningfully consider and work within an existing community context by applying a cultural and economic equity lens to real estate investment decisions and the planning and construction of new developments. We must readily acknowledge that there is often an ethnic, socioeconomic, and language disconnect between developers and the existing residents of communities undergoing rapid change.  How can attorneys and real estate brokers help identify their own biases and those of their clients in order to help navigate successful developments that engage community?
