Colorado Creative Industries
“Colorado Creates” is Colorado Creative Industries’ largest grant program. This award provides financial support to help nonprofit arts organizations and communities produce arts and cultural activities, bringing jobs to their communities and enhancing the quality of life.
Colorado Creates Grants stimulate creativity and support arts and cultural activities statewide by providing:
· Access to grants that leverage other funds and provide a seal of excellence
· Support for existing arts and cultural events, and venues and arts education activities
· Support in as many communities as possible
· Access to general operating support
Colorado Creates Grants are given annually on a competitive basis. Proposals are reviewed by panels based on three review criteria:
· Artistic excellence and merit of proposed activities
· Community involvement and benefit from proposed activities
· Implementation capacity, such as effective planning, management, and budgeting of the organization and the project.
Breck Film Fest is proud to have received the “Colorado Creates” grant for the 2016 and 2017 festivals.
