The Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region (COPPR) is the local arts agency for the City of Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak region (El Paso and Teller Counties) in Colorado.  The Cultural Office works year-round, often behind the scenes, to achieve more than any one artist or cultural organization could do independently to ensure that the creative sector thrives and uplifts our entire region’s life and economy. As an independent nonprofit, we are efficient, strategic, and passionate about this work.
