2014 is the Year of the Carbondale Creative Plan and Carbondale is moving forward. The Creative Plan will focus on three areas : Connectivity and Wayfinding, Branding and Marketing and the Creative Inventory and Directory for Carbondale and it’s surrounding areas. This process is all in part to become a designated Creative District in the state of Colorado, but is also in effort to build greater identity and community around the various Creative Industries that exist in and around Carbondale.

We need our communities knowledge, vision, and input in order for the Creative Plan to bring economic development, support of our creatives and a vision for the future.
