The Arizona Commission on the Arts is now accepting applications for Artist Opportunity Grants! Artists may request between $500 and $1,500 in funding support as they take advantage of specific, unique opportunities that have the potential to significantly impact their professional growth.
Devised by Childsplay in partnership with Valle Del Sol, a local mental health provider, this 5-part series is geared toward helping teaching artists understand what is happening to them mentally and physically, learn tools for addressing their stress and anxiety, and build community with other teaching artists through creative activities.
The Arizona Commission on the Arts awarded $5,000 research & Development grants to 24 Arizona artists working to advance their artistic practice, expand their creative horizons, and deepen the impact of their work.
According to new data released on March 30, 2021, by the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) and the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), Arizona’s arts and culture industries contributed $10.87 Billion to the state’s economy in 2019, employing nearly 89,033 Arizonans who earned a combined $5.59 Billion, contributing more to the State’s economy than mining, agriculture, and forestry combined.
