Made possible through the generous support of Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust, AZ Creative Aging will provide training to teaching artists, support the development of high-quality arts programs for older adults, and embed creative aging knowledge and best practices in the community.
The Arizona Commission on the Arts will visit Douglas, Tucson, Phoenix and Flagstaff to present a series of artist grant information sessions and grantwriting workshops throughout the coming weeks.

“Find a poem that speaks to you. Find a poem that tugs at your soul and makes it easy for you to envision yourself reciting its words to an audience. Spend time choosing a poem that suits you and your interests. Meet the words, know the words, carry them with you and speak them with the intention of making others feel them.”
“My hope in developing this new work is to gain a more comprehensive understanding of the communities I live in and I come from, while forming new meaningful relationships with indigenous and non-indigenous communities.” Steve Yazzie, recipient of a 2015 Artist Research & Development Grant.
