Embracing the Arts as an Economic Driver

Updated: Nov 11, 2019

"Tiny Trinidad appears to be a microcosm of America at work. But it could have just as easily been written off as another coal center caught in a cycle that’s much more bust than boom. After all, this railroad stop — three hours from both Denver and Santa Fe — was recently reeling, having lost 1,300 jobs from 2009 to 2014 after multiple mines shut down. Now Trinidad is thriving, in part, local officials say, because it made a bold decision to embrace the arts as an economic driver."
