Two free opportunities to help enterprises thrive 

The Creative Enterprise Zone (CEZ) is full of hardworking people relying on their creativity to do something noteworthy. Whether you’re a business, artist, nonprofit, or artisan, we want to help tell your story in the new We Make It Here project funded by the Central Corridor Funders Collaborative.

Eight enterprises (can be businesses, nonprofits, artists, or self-styled collaborations) will be selected to be paired with  a writer who will help tell your story to audiences across the region; a visual display maker to design a bold on-the-street display to depict your work; and a pop-up mixer to celebrate your place in the Creative Zone and forge new connections.
Would you like your work to be featured? Express your interest by filling out the “Tell My Story” form here. Interested in helping Creative Enterprises tell their stories visually? Fill out the “Visual Display maker” form on the same page.

What is the Creative Enterprise Zone?

The Creative Enterprise Zone, located mid-city between St. Paul and Minneapolis, has the goal to be recognized as a center of creativity and enterprise, a place where many people make a living by their creative capacities.
Showcasing a mixture of urban-industrial and innovative enterprises, the Creative Enterprise Zone promises to be a fertile laboratory of entrepreneurship, business incubation, artistic endeavor and eclectic urban design. Located along the Central Corridor Light Rail Transit line at the hub of the Raymond Station area, this dynamic nucleus of artisans and industry provides a unique sense of place that captures the imagination.

Regionally significant due to the central location and ease of access, the community offers a symbiotic mix of live and work opportunities. Cultivation of diverse, affordable spaces for entrepreneurial businesses, artisans and residents, and support systems for a tightly interconnected creative community, are high priorities.
