Our Vision Statement
To create a multicultural arts center to broaden the base of understanding, appreciation and support for the arts through meaningful education initiatives and community partnerships, and to be of service to artists around the state.
Arizona Consortium for the Arts is a Non-Profit Organization approved by the Arizona Corporation Commission in February, 2008. We are seeking 501c3 tax exempt status. Arizona Consortium for the Arts has been established to assist and to be
of service to Arizona artists. We are dedicated to fostering and supporting the arts and artists, including the literary arts (any genres — writers, poets, playwrights), the visual arts (any form — painters, sculptors, muralists) and the performing arts (music, plays, performance art). Currently, the consortium provides support for Arizona artists as well as fostering free access to the arts for the general public by providing information and hosting cultural events. Our first project is a magazine titled "The Blue Guitar, http://www.theblueguitarmagazine.org/." We would like to provide opportunities to educate and involve schools, children and adults in expanding their artistic knowledge and horizons; as well as to, increase Arizona’s reputation nationwide as a cultural destination.
