things to do in Durango

During our stakeholder process, our community requested that the Durango Creative District organize informative/inspirational discussions and skill-building workshops with the creative community.

You asked and we listened. Beginning in February, we will be hosting a series that highlights local creative professionals from different industries, addresses topics that the creative community may have, and allows for open conversation. Don't miss these events -- you'll leave feeling inspired, informed and more connected with likeminded people!

If you are interested in being a presenter or have suggestions, please contact and provide your full name, contact info and a short description!
