Give Creatively! Join our holiday advertising campaign

Since its inception, the Crested Butte Creative District has worked to create more paid opportunities for local creatives. That’s why this year, we are working to connect holiday shoppers with you through a new “Give Creatively” Campaign.

Give Creatively is a campaign to remind people that our local creatives and creative businesses offer amazing one-of-a-kind goods and experiences that make ideal and personal gifts for the Holidays.  Your “Give Creatively” offer can be:

-A promotion (10% off an item, 2 for one, etc.)

-An advertisement/reminder to shoppers of what you offer without a promotion (give the gift of: hand-painted ornaments, one-of-a-kind jewelry, hand thrown pottery, small batch spirits, made to order skis, etc.)

-or a call to action/experience (purchase tickets to _______ for a gift this season, give a year long membership to our organization/business, give someone a set of aerial dance classes, etc.)

Our goal is to plant the idea in shoppers’ minds that we have to amazing gifts, of both goods and experiences, to offer here in this community, made and organized by creatives and creative businesses.

Do you have a promotion or gift idea that you would like the Creative District to help you market this season? If so, we would love to help you!

What we need:
1. A description of the promotion or gift idea you’re offering
2. A photo to accompany your description

What you’ll get:
1. Space on a holiday specials page on our website
2. Marketing through social media, flyers, and other avenues

Ready to participate? Sign up by November 17.
We want to make sure the campaign is successful, so we won’t go forward with the marketing unless we receive at least fifteen promotions or gift ideas from local businesses. Make sure to encourage your friends to list their offers!

If you have questions or need help brainstorming, feel free to reach out at or (970) 349-5338 and ask for Hilary Henry, Creative District Coordinator.
