The Arizona Commission on the Arts is deeply committed to promoting and supporting lifelong learning in, through and about the arts. To ensure that our grantmaking in this area continues to serve the sector’s evolving needs, reach applicants where they are, and direct essential funding support to the most diverse range of programs and projects, Arts Learning Grants are available in two distinct categories:
Arts Learning Collaboration Grants enhance the work of school-based arts teaching and learning programs through collaborative projects taking place in-school (during regular school hours), after-school, or during summer/inter-session and in-services.
Lifelong Arts Engagement Grants support partnerships that foster meaningful arts learning experiences in a variety of community settings for learners of any age. Community/social service organizations or governmental entities partnered with arts organizations or professional teaching artists are eligible to apply.
To allow applicants maximum flexibility, each of these grant programs will be on a convenient multiple deadline application cycle:
