Media and Immersive eXperience (MIX) Center
Cutting edge facilities and tools
The Media and Immersive eXperience (MIX) Center will be a world class facility for emerging media technologies, second to none.
Community amenities and engagement
Just outside of the MIX Center, community members can gather in Mesa’s new three-acre Plaza at Mesa City Center. Adjacent to the MIX Center, ASU will operate The Studios, with programs to support Mesa residents with entrepreneurial or business ideas. Training programs, workshops, seminars and mentorship opportunities will be available to individuals or groups. Partnerships are underway that will bring in children and high school students from Mesa Public Schools, community arts organizers from the Mesa Arts Center, community representatives from Downtown Mesa Association and more.
The MIX Center began as a collaboration between Arizona State University and the City of Mesa and is located in the City’s innovative, diverse and historic downtown (find out more about what the downtown has to offer here). Not only is it one of the first media production facilities of its type, but it is designed to be fully embedded in the surrounding community as a hive of cultural exchange and public programming and events.
This vision will only be achieved through partnerships with organizations and the surrounding communities. The MIX Center has been designed to be a public amenity and place of collaboration and engagement for the entire community.
Community advisory board
The MIX Center is facilitating a community advisory group to guide development and public programming at the center. This group began to meet in January 2022 and will co-create its mission, vision and structure. The board is a representative group of community leaders engaged in various sectors in Mesa. This group will explore how the MIX Center can be a mutually beneficial addition to the city.
