Join the Creative District

The Carbondale Creative Industry Inventory provides a listing of your name or business, a photo, location (which automatically populates on our Carbondale map), contact information and a weblink. This inventory is accessible from kiosks throughout town for the use of locals and visitors alike. Your listing will be searchable through your creative industry category, as well as through keywords and the listing will include a map with your business location. These kiosks are in collaboration with the Carbondale Business Chamber and Carbondale Tourism.

Carbondale’s Creative Industries are divided into the following categories: 1. Studio Arts; 2. Design, Media and Innovation; 3. Culinary Arts; 4. Healing Arts; 5. Performing Arts; 6. Cultural Heritage which includes local food production, ranching and history.

Each category has a color and icon to identify it visually. The icons will be on the signs. The CCD has a 4” sticker of our logo in the color that relates to your industry. You should display the sticker somewhere in your business to create visual connection and identity. The CCD is picking up the cost of most of this but is asking our creatives to help get us increased visibility and economy for Carbondale and for you.

An individual creative or artist: $25.00 a year for listing and sticker. Business of two or more: $50.00 a year for listing and sticker. If you cannot pay this cost, but want to be listed we have a number of scholarships available.

In addition to the Creative Industry Inventory, the CCD maintains a news blog on this site and Facebook page that promotes events and opportunity in the district, is creating Map and Information Stations at key locations in the district and is continuing to implement our wayfinding plan and signage. Along with the increased CCD marketing efforts, Carbondale will receive increased promotion from the State of Colorado Tourism Council and the Colorado Creative Industries.
