We believe there is a direct link between the arts and a thriving community. This is a place where artists of all disciplines can explore, educate and perform while inspiring metro-area residents.
Through high-quality and affordable event, performance and rehearsal space, this is a place for those who have something to share. It's also a beautiful facility for meetings, social gatherings—and even the occasional wedding.

Access to a high-quality venue to provide dignity for our artists.
A dedication to a revenue neutral business model.
Resident organizations to keep us grounded in our community.
“We need our arts to teach us how to breathe."
The history of The People's Building's is as dynamic as Aurora itself. Once a ski shop and then a rent-to-own furniture store, it was acquired by the City of Aurora's Office of Urban Renewal and Redevelopment. They invested over two million into the building's revitalization and it is now utilized as a gallery and a flexible event space for cultural events, workshops, meetings, independent artists, musicians, dancers, and event planners.
