As we close 2022 we are celebrating our first year as a certified Creative District here in La Veta! We are reminded of how this designation has helped our town recover from the last several years of hardships. Through donations from this event and our county's support we have been able to help with supplemental funding for many of the creative events that take place here in La Veta. We have donated funds and supported art education programs, festivals, and have also held several pop up shopping sprees at our local businesses. These purchases helped the businesses and us in the set up our office and to be able to provide prizes for events. LVCD re-started the First Friday Art Walks and also created a couple of events that folks seemed to really enjoy. The Birdhouse painting class! LVCD has granted Art Awards to graduating seniors and look forward to increasing the amount we can give and would like to add more creative programs for the students in 2023. LVCD is committed to providing whatever financial support we can to the programs we have going in our Creative District. We need fundraisers like this to continue with our operating costs, including our employee marketing web-site maintenance and expenses, along with rent and insurance for our office space. These costs alone run over $5000.00 a year. LVCD has several projects in mind, these will all take financial support to bring to fruition. Some of these projects include the filming of our cultural events and the interviewing and promoting of our creatives. We would like to create trail markers for La Veta Trails and provide musical outdoor equipment to add to the playground that is coming. The restoration/beautification of the outside of our train car that serve as the lavatories at the park is a major project that will take planning and much bigger funds!!. LVCD would like to generate a lecture series delivered by local artists and creatives for our galleries shows and cultural events. We also always need supplemental monies for membership fees and to keep our marketing and web-site fresh and current. LVCD has so many plans and projects that it is hard to list them all. As everyone knows anything is possible with volunteers and funding!! Please Donate to keep The Creative District up and moving forward. Thanks from the LVCD
