The Arts Foundation for Tucson and Southern Arizona’s stART to Heal Grant for Creatives provides individuals, collectives, and co-ops residing in Southern Arizona and the Native Sovereign Nations of Ak-Chin Indian Community, Sovereign Nation of the Cocopahs, Quechan Tribe of the Fort Yuma Indian Reservation, Gila River Indian Community, Pascua Yaqui Tribe, Tohono O’Odham Nation, and San Carlos Apache Nation. Southern Arizona encompasses all communities between the Gila River and the US-Mexico International Border.  Awards funds through two alternate tracks of support:

  • The Community Impact track provides financial support to individuals, groups or organizations for projects that will positively impact a community through an artistic endeavor. 
  • The Artist Development track provides financial support to creatives for whom a specific, practice-related capital resource or professional development experience will make an impact on their artistic practice.  

Community impact and sustainability are two of the top priorities identified in the Three-Year Strategic Plan guiding the Arts Foundation for Tucson and Southern Arizona through 2021.  

Implicit in AFTSA’s vision is a desire for diverse artists and arts organizations within the region to be able to engage in their craft without having to struggle economically.
