The Arizona Commission on the Arts is seeking up to 11 arts organizations throughout Maricopa County to participate in this new program of the AZ Creative Aging initiative, to take place November 2016 through May 2017.

Generously supported by Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust, AZ Creative Aging is a three-year initiative of the Arizona Commission on the Arts which aims to embed creative aging knowledge and best practices in communities, build an infrastructure for high-quality arts and aging programs, and enhance quality of life for older Arizonans. Generation(s) Lab is the initiative’s second programmatic module.

 

The call for applications is open to all arts organizations based in Maricopa County, of any budget size and artistic discipline. An applicant must be incorporated as a nonprofit organization with tax-exempt status or be a unit of government. Eligible organizations include arts organizations, local arts agencies and tribal cultural organizations. Multidisciplinary or multipurpose organizations are eligible if they are able to demonstrate that the arts comprise at least 50% of the organization’s public programming.

Established creative aging programs or service to older adults is not a requirement, nor does the existence of such programs or services constitute a disadvantage in the selection process.
