The Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region (COPPeR) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) local arts agency whose mission is “connecting residents and visitors with arts & culture to enrich the Pikes Peak region.” Governed by an engaged Board of Directors, and with the leadership and passion of a small but dedicated staff, our work at the Cultural Office is all about elevating the visibility, value and impact of the creative sector here in our community.
The Cultural Office takes a strategic view of Colorado’s Pikes Peak region (including the City of Colorado Springs and all of El Paso and Teller Counties) to ensure that cultural services reach all people, and that the arts are leveraged to positively address issues of economic development, education, cultural tourism, and quality of life. We provide an umbrella service encompassing areas such as marketing and communication, broad-based data gathering, strategic planning and programming, and advocacy for our creative sector in its entirety. The arts are an ecosystem – and at the Cultural Office, we want to ensure that all parts of that ecosystem are healthy, thriving and fully integrated into the fabric of the community.
