    Get an inside look at the challenging dynamics behind one of the hottest, growing areas in the city—the River North Art District (RiNo) neighborhood of Denver that’s currently undergoing significant transformation from industrial corridor to a thriving artistic, eclectic, mixed-use destination.  Delve into the multi-pronged and complicated storytelling involved as President of the RiNo Arts District, Jamie Licko, and Vice President of Economic Development at Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation, Sam Bailey, discuss the development, gentrification and growth behind RiNo.

    With RiNo comes exciting growth, development and economic stimulus, yet it’s juxtaposed against undeniable sensitivities, including gentrifying neighborhoods, displacing long-term residents, and altering the historical significance of the area. Furthermore, this multi-faceted story affects several different audiences that need to be addressed, including a business audience, communities, elected officials and more. This makes it crucial to think about how to tell the story and communicate it successfully so that it resonates with each audience.
