Join Artspace along with the city of Trinidad and Corazón de Trinidad Creative District for a celebratory evening filled with music and art from the local community!
Trinidad Space to Create is an exciting opportunity for Trinidad and the state of Colorado to show the potential and impact of the local creative sector, workforce housing, and creative workspace in rural communities. Read on to learn more about the project and its history. Located in Southeast Colorado, Trinidad Space to Create is the demonstration project for Space to Create Colorado, a state-led initiative to create affordable creative sector and workforce housing and workspace in rural Colorado communities.
Artspace transformed the entire 200 block of Trinidad’s downtown Main Street into a dynamic complex that combined three historic structures with distinct exteriors, linking the second stories of all three with 13 affordable, live/work apartments. Street-level amenities feature a “dirty” maker space and the city’s own cultural facility.
On August 4, the Corazón de Trinidad Creative District hosted a Sneak Peak with music by Mike Clark & The Sugar Sounds and tours of the new Commons building:
Six blocks away, next to Trinidad's historic train depot and across from a park, Artspace constructed a brand new building with 28 more units of affordable live/work apartments. This building, just one block off of Main Street, boasts views of the mountains and Purgatory River to provide plenty of inspiration to its residents.
Trinidad Space to Create is informing the series of statewide S2C projects that will follow, with Ridgway now under construction and Grand Lake next in the pipeline.
We invite you to join us as we celebrate the start of a new era of affordable, creative space in Trinidad!
