80010 is one of the most diverse zip codes in the region, our goal is to showcase the inspiring cultural knowledge and art the immigrant communities bring to America from their homelands. It’s time we celebrate our immigrant and refugee communities and support their traditions and expression.” - Says Tracy Weil, Executive Director of the Aurora Cultural Arts District.
Each mini-fest highlight artists and creatives that are a part of ACAD’s ACADIA Project. This exciting new program identifies refugee and immigrant artists in Aurora and helps them build their creative businesses and market and sell their work. This program is open to artists working in the visual arts, culinary fields, makers, dance and other creative endeavors.
The Aurora Cultural Arts District’s mission is to encourage artistic and cultural creativity through advocacy, promoting programs and activities, supporting our multicultural urban communities, and providing opportunities for diverse expression.
