In 2024, RiNo is committed to supporting artists and creatives with funding for projects and public programs in the five neighborhoods that make up the RiNo Art District. Throughout the year, RiNo will partner to distribute $150k in rolling grants to creatives and organizations.

We are excited about projects that:

  • are collaborative, co-created, and made with thoughtful partnerships
  • provide opportunities for Denver creatives
  • foster community involvement and engagement
  • promote fair wages for any artists and creatives involved
  • prioritize funds going directly to artists over logistics

Project requirements:

  • Projects must be located in North Denver, specifically the five neighborhoods that create RiNo (Five Points, Globeville, Elyria-Swansea, Cole)
  • Projects must take place in 2024

Eligible projects include, but are not limited to:

  • Start-up projects and programs
  • Projects and programs building on past work
  • Events and festivals
  • All art forms - performing, visual, literary, installations, etc.

Applications are reviewed throughout the year. Funded projects will be asked to complete an impact report for RiNo Art District. Thank you for applying to the Creative Grants Program! We look forward to reviewing your application.
