Englewood wants to bring together the city’s artists, creatives and arts-driven small businesses, and it will have the opportunity to do so at the Englewood Creates event.
The free event, which will be held at the Black Cube Headquarters at 2925 S. Umatilla St. on May 23 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., will aim to help Englewood’s art community grow. Other goals of the event will be for artists, creatives and arts-driven small businesses to share resources with each other.
Among those who will speak at the event are Englewood Mayor Linda Olson.
“Englewood Creates will showcase the wide variety of highly talented artists and creative entrepreneurs from our community and allow for their continued growth through networking, partnering, and friendships that are made at this exciting event,” Olson said.
Those who attend the event will be treated to local food and beverage vendors and live music.
“When you look at Englewood’s creative sector such as culinary professionals, graphic designers, software developers and cabinetmaker, they are all playing a significant role in Englewood’s economic development,” said David Carroll, executive director for the Greater Englewood Chamber of Commerce.
The event will be sponsored by the City of Englewood, Englewood Cultural Arts Commission, the Museum of Outdoor Arts and others.
“We invite the entire community to come and celebrate the arts with us at this fun and casual event,” said Toni Arnoldy, Englewood’s community relations coordinator.
The Colorado Business Committee for the Arts, an organization that works to advance the state’s creative economy by bringing business and the arts together, sees art as something that can help a community thrive. According to the organization’s 2018 economic report, cultural tourists spend an additional $22.50 on non-ticket items when attending an arts event. That number comes from people who go shop at retail stores, or go out to dinner.
