|With a combined $301 million annual economic impact, Phoenix's non-profit arts and cultural organizations are critical to the city's economic prosperity. A diverse and vibrant cultural community is also an important tool in the development of an innovative business sector and recruitment of a highly educated creative workforce. With cuts to education--particularly arts education--the arts and culture community is an increasingly critical partner in delivering cultural education and experiences to all Phoenix residents.
Whether your organization is a large arts institution offering the arts to our city and region, a school committed to teaching and learning through the arts, or a neighborhood center providing a place for young people to experience their own artistic achievement, your presence is vital to Phoenix.
The Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture's Grants Program is dedicated to supporting non-profit arts and cultural organizations. The program strives to:
>Ensure broad public access to the arts
>Encourage the growth and vitality of our diverse arts community
>Enrich the lives of Phoenix youth through involvement of the arts
Due to economic conditions and related reductions to the city arts grants budget, the Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture revised the structure of the arts grants program to focus limited resources on support of core Phoenix-based nonprofit arts and cultural organizations.
