Erin and Chris, congratulations are in order.

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act recognizes the fact that the nonprofit arts and culture industry is an important sector of America’s economy. On behalf of the National Endowment for the Arts, Colorado Creative Industries awarded funds to nonprofit arts organizations in Colorado to help those entities and their employees endure the economic hardships caused by the forced closure of their operations due to the spread of COVID-19. These funds are intended to help save jobs in the arts sector and keep the doors open to the hundreds of organizations that add value to Colorado’s economy and the creative life of local communities.

The Telluride Fire Festival is thankful for the support of CCI & NEA!
