Colorado Attorneys For The Arts

Our local quality of life, regional economic development and national reputation relies on a vibrant creative sector. Colorado Business Committe for the Arts (CBCA) advances Colorado’s creativity vitality by connecting business and the arts. The Colorado Attorneys for the Arts (CAFTA) which rolled out across the state in 2015 is a program of the CBCA and is a pro bono legal referral service, connecting creative entities to volunteer lawyers.

CAFTA provides a unique community service and professional development opportunity for law firms and their attorneys. Colorado’s creative vitality depends on the success of our artists. CAFTA partners with the legal community to boost artists’ career growth and self-sufficiency. A thriving, professional arts community results in more »

How to Create a Successfully Funded Kickstarter

Last night, Arts For Colorado hosted a Kickstarter workshop in Denver featuring Stephanie Pereira, Kickstarter’s International & Civic Partnerships Lead. Also presenting at the event were Brigid McAuliffe and Robert Rhu, two local artists who had successfully funded their Kickstarter campaigns. We had an overwhelming turnout, over 50 people in attendance! It looks like everyone wanted to know more about this amazing crowd funding website. We learned a ton from all of the speakers and the questions that were asked sparked great conversations during and after the event.

In order to continue hosting free workshops like these, it is crucial that Arts For Colorado gets the support it needs. If you can, please donate to our cause here or to become a member, visit us at our member page
