The Arizona Creative Communities Institute (AZ CCI) is a learning program wherein diverse teams from Arizona cities, towns, and neighborhoods reimagine community assets and devise meaningful projects that place creative engagement, ethical and equitable practices, and local wisdom at the center. With local and national artists and creative entrepreneurs as collaborators, AZ CCI teams work alongside their neighbors and across the AZ CCI network in support of community transformation through the arts.
The AZ CCI is an initiative of the Arizona Commission on the Arts and Arizona State University’s Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, with guidance from Southwest Folklife Alliance, a nonprofit affiliate of the University of Arizona. The AZ CCI has been made possible by a grant from the Surdna Foundation with additional support from the Arizona Community Foundation.
AZ Creative Voices is a 10 episode podcast series that chronicles the AZ CCI experience. Producer Regina Revazova takes listeners on a tour of participating communities, highlighting the challenges and successes of this creative partnership; the potential of community-engaged work; and the many discoveries within teams and across the learning cohort as participants strengthened their collaborative skills.
