NoBo OFFICIALLY RECOGNIZED as a “creative district”

On March 21, 2017, the Boulder City Council delivered a declaration officially recognizing the NoBo Art District as a “creative district.” The declaration acknowledges

  • Importance of culture in the history of Boulder
  • Contributions artists make to social and economic vibrancy
  • Advantages that creative districts have for communities
  • Honors the many people in north Boulder who have banded together to support artists

The NoBo Art District, and other cultural leaders in north Boulder, look forward to collaborating with city departments, especially the Community Vitality Department and the Office of Arts and Culture, on the opportunities a formal creative district can offer.
