Unlocking Arizona’s Creative Potential
This year, as the Arizona Commission on the Arts celebrates its 50th anniversary, we are proud to launch NextAZ, a visionary planning initiative designed to unleash the power of the arts in realizing Arizona’s brightest future.
Through innovative programs, strategic investment, exploration and convenings, NextAZ will empower communities to activate creative assets and co-create ideas to fuel Arizona’s next 50 years.
NextAZ activities put you at the center, focusing on…
- LISTENING to your stories, your triumphs and aspirations;
- LEARNING about your unique talents, and your community’s challenges and opportunities; and
- LEVERAGING – lending our creative and collaborative skills to help Arizonans, and Arizona communities, achieve their most significant goals.
Our NextAZ begins today. Let’s create it together.
This area of the website will become home to invitations and information related to NextAZ community programming, research, and grantmaking, to result in innovative creative activities and products, intra- and cross-sector partnerships, publications, policy papers, interactive online tools, and an agency plan.
