    Creative Industries Zone

    New Downtown CIZ Brand Launch and Craftober Fest
    more ▼ less ▲

    One of the most exciting things in the City has been building a new downtown. This neighborhood is rising up out of the ground, but it isn’t just coming out of nowhere. It is being built in and around an industrial neighborhood that has long been home to many hidden small businesses that manufacture and craft products that we buy, eat and drink. Even better, many of these businesses are open for you to enjoy them. Welcome to the Creative Industries Zone!  

    A small, committed group of business owners and friends have been working together to remake this neighborhood while keeping it creative. So while they are behind the scenes making art, building furniture, and brewing beer, they are also out on the streets with the SSL Arts Council making their mark on the neighborhood.

    So what’s this funny light bulb with the eyeball all about? It’s about giving our Creative Industries Zone a symbol and making it more recognizable once you’ve there. It’s about giving you a clue that something creative is happening inside those walls. So the next time you come to the Creative Industries Zone for Craftoberfest or Mural Fest or a night out, look for the lightbulb and let it guide your way.
