the vision

The wheels started turning when the city of Decatur, through a Community Strategic Investment Plan, established a founding concept. The underlying principle is that “artistic exploration is key to creativity, creativity is an essential component of innovation, and innovation creates new and expanded industries which are the basis of our future economy.” The discovery would be supported by place-based and people-based strategies promoting creativity and innovation through art advocacy, career skills, leadership development, and entrepreneurial training. The wheels haven't stopped turning since, the city has embarked on a path to create a hometown where residents and visitors can live, work, and play in.

Adaptive-reuse and preservation of historic Schafer Hardware Company Building in downtown Decatur is underway.
