Moses Lake has an opportunity to establish a Creative District downtown through ARTS Washington’s state certification process. 

What is a Creative District? It’s an urban, walkable area of artistic and creative activities and businesses. It’s a focal point - a geographically defined area of cultural and economic activity. It's the heart of a community - for people to gather and enjoy the arts and cultural a community has to offer.

It can include cultural facilities, art-related organizations, and creative and other businesses that support or complement these activities. It's a way for a community to grow jobs and create economic opportunities for all people through the arts. And it's a place where innovation and creativity can thrive, helping a community move enthusiastically into the future. Creative Districts are fun places to live, work, and visit.

How can you help? We need your feedback to help plan for the best Creative District in the state. Your survey answers will help the community planning team as we move forward on this exciting adventure!
