CULTURE & EXPERIENCES
The District and surrounding area are home to significant socioeconomic, racial and cultural diversity. ACAD and its many partners (Theatre Esprit Asia, Roshni, 5280 Artist Co-op, Tonos Latinos, etc.) are actively engaged and highlight the diversity in this unique community. 80010, 80011, 80012 are some of Coloradoʼs most diverse zip codes). The district has worked hard to engage these groups in programming and participation in the arts and culture district-wide.
The Aurora Culture Arts District provides events for artists to share their work with the community via our annual Aurora Art Festival, IMMI-FEST and other special events throughout the year. We support the arts in the community. In March, 2012 the Aurora Cultural Arts District was designated as a Non-Profit 501 c(3) organization.
