Come and create. Come and enjoy. Trinidad’s ever growing creative community has a place for you.

In June, 2013, Trinidad became a certified Colorado Creative District.  In 2015, the city also became a Colorado Main Street community, known as Trinidad Historic Main Street. In 2016, the Space to Create project was added to the ongoing rejuvenation of Trinidad. Trinidad Space to Create is the demonstration project for Space to Create Colorado, a state-led initiative to create affordable creative sector and workforce housing and workspace in rural Colorado communities. 

Trinidad Artspace will transform an entire block of downtown Main Street into a dynamic complex that will combine three historic structures with distinct exteriors, linking the second stories of all three with 13 affordable, live/work apartments for creatives. Street-level amenities will feature a “dirty” makerspace for tenants to utilize, and the city’s own, 25,000-square-foot cultural facility. Six blocks away, next to a historic train depot and across from a park, Artspace will construct a brand new building with 28 more units of affordable live/work apartments.



The Trinidad Creative District is defined on paper by a loose boundary that encompasses the historic Corazon de Trinidad (Heart of Trinidad) business district.  In spirit, The Creative District is an inclusive effort to support creatives throughout our area and help our rural economy find new vibrancy and diversity through the hands and minds of the creative people who reside here.

The Corazon de Trinidad Creative District is organized to attract artists and creative entrepreneurs to the area, infusing new energy and innovation to promote the economic and civic capital of the community. The District works to create economic activity hubs and provides a focal point for celebrating and strengthening Trinidad’s unique identity and sense of place.
