Arizona Citizens for the Arts acts as the eyes, ears and voice of the nonprofit arts and culture sector in Arizona – at the State Legislature, in local city halls and in partnerships with business and community leaders involved in building and supporting quality of life in Arizona.

Nonprofit arts organizations represent more than a half billion dollars of economic activity in communities all across Arizona. And they help support a larger creative industries sector that employs more than 50,000 individuals statewide.  Arts and culture contribute to local tourism, support job attraction efforts and contribute to excellence in education in our schools.  Get Connected to Arizona Citizens for the Arts, visit our Legislative Action Center or review Arts and Public Policy  to learn more about what we’re doing to support arts, culture and arts education in Arizona.
