Take a moment and walk down memory lane with the honorable Mayor John Suthers as he reflects on the history and the future of the Colorado Springs City Auditorium.

Community Cultural Collective — 
 Colorado Springs City Auditorium

Our mission is to create a true city center affording access to all citizens for the purposes of relevant, inspired, and thoughtful works of the human spirit.

Commitment to Community

The multi-use auditorium will facilitate education, access, creation, and presentation of all that builds the human spirit – arts, culture performance, and dialogue. The cherished and valued building itself will be restored to its original intent of bringing all citizens together for a variety of purposes.

Who We Are

A collective of education, arts, culture and business community “for the use of the people and the glory of the city”
