The transition from one decade into the next is traditionally a period of reflection on the past and planning for the future. In this spirit, the Arizona Commission on the Arts will ring in the 2020s with a community-engaged renovation of our flagship grant program, the Community Investment Grant.
Opportunity Grants provide funding support to Arizona artists, teaching artists, and arts administrators as they take advantage of specific, unique opportunities that have the potential to significantly impact their professional growth.
The Arizona Commission on the Arts, an agency of the State of Arizona, announced today the hire of Kesha Bruce to the position of Artist Programs Manager. Bruce joins Artist Programs Coordinator Anna Needham (Red Lake Ojibwe) who was hired this past February.
“In her work, she provided insightful, thorough, and compassionate service to hundreds of arts organizations and thousands of individuals advancing the work of arts and culture in Arizona cities, towns, and neighborhoods. We know Kristen will bring the same kind of thoughtful engagement to her next endeavor, and we are excited to watch her take this next step.”
