Our Mission: Building a community of the creative spirit in the heart of Rockford for artists, entrepreneurs and professionals to live, work and play.
A movement to infuse excitement into downtown began as a city hall initiative under the direction of Mayor Larry Morrissey, then turned to artists and arts organizations to help create a downtown arts and cultural district.
How? By responding to community needs and desires. By embracing diverse goals that focus on enhancing community well-being and the growth of downtown. By pulling together individuals and organizations who share the same dream.
Like-minded individuals and groups work together to guide The ELEMENT as it facilitates:
The spirit of the Rockford arts community is alive, well and growing. Join us at a concert, a theatrical presentation, in a class or as a downtown resident artist. See how elements of The ELEMENT fit your lifestyle!
The Element is proud to be part of the premiere website for finding events in the downtown Rockford area.
