Are you interested in having your educational or arts organization perform on one of the beautiful world-class stages at Mesa Arts Center? Would you enjoy a day or night in the spotlight? If so, then consider applying for a Mesa Arts Center Foundation (MACF) grant awarded via the popular Arts at the Center Program.

Up to six Arts at the Center grant recipients are chosen each year to present a performance or activity on one of MAC’s stages or in one of its other spaces (studios, outdoor spaces). Theater seating can accommodate from 100 to 1,500 attendees, depending upon the selected space and the type and size of presentation.

An Arts at the Center grant allows presenters to
(1) have the facilities rental fee waived and
(2) receive up to $1,000 in financial support to offset some of the related production costs.

Arts at the Center grant applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
There are openings available and application for performance opportunities is strongly encouraged.
We’ve made it easy! A simple Letter of Interest form is your first step.


The current application is for projects between July 1, 2023 – Jun 30, 2024.
DEADLINE for Letters of Interest (LOI’s) is APRIL 14, 2023.
Selected applicants will be NOTIFIED BY APRIL 26,2023 and sent a short application, which must be returned by MAY 26, 2023.
Award Notification: By JUNE 15, 2023.

PLEASE NOTE both the Letter of Interest and Finalist applications are very short and easy to complete. The two-part process is designed to make applying quick and painless.
