THE FIREFIGHTERS OF 9/11

Our Mission:

The Corazón de Trinidad Creative District supports artists and entrepreneurs through creative initiatives which economically benefit the community, while continually honoring Trinidad's history.

 

What we do:

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

Arts and Culture,
The "Heart" of Trinidad

The Trinidad Creative District is called the "Corazón de Trinidad (Heart of Trinidad)" for good reason. Arts and Culture activities have played a pivotal role in enriching the lives of people in the community and region for centuries. The slide show below contains just a few of the many existing historical photos of the diverse art and culture events and venues in Trinidad and surrounding areas over time.
