The Salida Creative District was formed to support the ongoing economic growth in Salida and to create a climate in which artists, creatives and creative enterprises can thrive. Keeping with this mission, the Salida Creative District created the free Creative Mondays business education class series in October 2013. Featured topics have ranged from business plans to marketing and website development; the focus is on teaching business and marketing skills to help businesses thrive and grow. They are held monthly on a Monday evening.
