Professional Development

In order to meet our mission of supporting local creatives, the Creative District is working to increase professional development programming for our local community.

By initiating partnerships with the Crested Butte/Mt. Crested Butte Chamber of Commerce as well as the ICELab at Western State Colorado University, the Creative District is excited to announce the launch of two new professional development programs to better serve our creative community.

Off-Season Professional Development Series

The Crested District is beyond excited to partner with the Crested Butte/Mt. Crested Butte Chamber of Commerce on their off-season professional development series. Each seminar is at the Crested Butte Old Rock Library at 7 p.m. Check out the schedule below and click here to learn more.

Business Bootcamp for Creatives

Launching in Fall 2019, the Creative District is excited to partner with Western State’s ICELab to offer a  mini-conference called “Business Bootcamp for Creatives”. The conference will incorporate important business and marketing skills for creative individuals or businesses, and will serve not only the Gunnison Valley community, but the Western Slope as well by looping in our Creative Corridor Partners. The goal for this conference is to continue evolving the programming to meet our creatives’ needs and host it in a different Creative District each subsequent year.
