Thank you to Verde Valley Leadership, Inc. for inviting us to present at their monthly Development Day this afternoon. Our Programs and Grants Coordinator Brad DeBiase co-presented with ASU Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts' Ricky Araiza on the role the arts can play in addressing complex community challenges.

The panel, organized by Yvonne Montoya, a Tucson-based dance artist and founder of Safos Dance Theatre, also included M. Jenea Sanchez, a media artist and co-founder of Border Arts Corridor in Douglas, and Erin Donahue, a Scottsdale-based dance artist and arts administrator. The panel discussed "the challenges and opportunities of collaborating across 3 different cities to serve and collaborate with artists in communities that have been historically marginalized and isolated."
