What We Do
"Creative placemaking is really just creative humans trying to help other humans live a better life" - Jason Schupbach, director of Design Programs at the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA)
As a donor supported nonprofit and Main Street America organization, our mission is to foster a thriving and vibrant downtown Driggs. We do that by enriching our community through arts and cultural programs, creative placemaking, and streetscape improvements.
We believe in the power of the arts-based programs, creative placemaking and streetscape improvements to enrich our community, and to strengthen and sustain our downtown. While remaining accessible for everyone, our programs provide engaging experiences that celebrate our culture, create connections within our community and inspire possibilities for the future.
