Who We Serve
At the Arts Foundation, we serve and fund organizations and community members residing in the city of Tucson, Pima County, and increasingly, in the Southern Arizona region.
We aim to reach and engage both urban and rural communities, knowing important art is being created in the large cities and small towns of Southern Arizona. We work to learn from and support these artists as well as the place they call home.
“…cultural self-determination is a crucial dimension of equity. That is the ability to make sense of the world on one’s own terms, to tell one’s own story, to dream, imagine, assert aesthetically. This is foundational to our American ethos, and access to the resources and opportunities for arts engagement is a crucial dimension of an equitable community.”
–Dr. Maria Rosario Jackson, Welcome remarks at the 2022 National Arts Action Summit.
