Colorado Springs, Colorado, is the county seat of El Paso County, and the metro area includes more than 645,000 people.

Imagination Celebration and Colorado Springs Cultural Services, along with ten additional government, not-for-profit, and arts organizations, will present What IF..., a Festival of Innovation and Imagination, a free outdoor community festival in Colorado Springs. The festival will engage rural, suburban, and urban residents in a range of creative activities to explore existing community assets and envision ideas for the region's future. Project funds will support a team of professionals with architecture, urban design, installation art, public art, and community development expertise to conduct a range of workshops at the festival that will enable residents to creatively engage with their environment and inform future plans for their region. The festival will offer over 100 creative experiences for attendees and attract an estimated 25,000 residents to six city blocks in downtown Colorado Springs. The project is expected to benefit the entire Pikes Peak Region.
