ABOUT THE AZ CREATIVE COMMUNITIES INSTITUTE
Casa Grande is one of nine Arizona communities selected to participate in the AZ Creative Communities Institute (AZCCI), a program of the Arizona Commission on the Arts and Arizona State University’s Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts (ASU HIDA), with guidance from Southwest Folklife Alliance. AZ CCI offered small teams composed of diverse members of Arizona communities a unique opportunity to explore the many ways creativity can be put to work for positive community impact. AZCCI teams are members of an active learning network, with opportunities to learn from and with local and national experts, as well as peers from other Arizona cities/towns and neighborhoods.
