“Any activity becomes creative when the doer cares about doing it right or better.” ~John Updike
Yesterday I blogged about the Yampa Valley Choral Society. It is just one of many art organizations that abound in this town of Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
Did you know Steamboat Springs, Colorado was recently ranked in the Southern Methodist University’s National Center for Arts Research as #14 on the Arts Vibrancy Index?
The town also has the distinction of holding 4th place in the Small Towns to Visit in 2014 in the Smithsonian Magazine. For the small community of 10,000+ people, art and culture is important to part of everyday living yet it does not always get the attention it deserves. There are changes underway which will change all that.
Steamboat Springs has become an incubator as a Colorado Certified “Creative District.” There is an interesting full article in the Steamboat Pilot Newspaper about what it takes to become a creative district and to obtain funding and support for it.
I, like many others, have found the creatively stimulating environment refreshing. Living life outloud is a term I associate with the people of Steamboat.
How does one “live life out loud?” Here is an interesting article about what that truly means.
That is all for now. See you tomorrow on All Things Fulfilling!
