OVER 200,000 NEW ARTS EXPERIENCES CREATED
Providing new opportunities and leadership for the arts to transform people, communities and the daily lives of individuals everywhere.
SUPPORT OUR EFFORTS
SAACA has embarked upon one of the most impactful community-wide efforts to date, with the establishment of a first of it's kind inspiring, innovative place where people from all walks of life connect through the shared experience of arts and culture. By bringing diverse groups of people together, the new 14,000 square foot community Maker and Arts Space nurtures shared learning and understanding – of both the value of individuals and the power of community.
CATALYST at Tucson Mall will serve as an active partner in the educational, economic and cultural life in Southern Arizona; inviting discovery, creativity, entrepreneurship and learning through collaboration. Through its programs, the Arts and Cultural Center will be a vital part of the fabric of our region.
SAACA believes that every culture has a history and tradition to honor. This common thread allows us to communicate across cultures in a universal language and understand one another in a different way. By supporting local arts and creativity, we animate our city with culture, empathy and create a stronger sense of place. Your individual investment in a vibrant Arizona today unlocks the creative potential for each of us tomorrow. A world without art would be a world without a voice or means for communication. We know that arts and culture record our history, challenges our present and informs our future.
A monthly or one-time pledge of support can help change the shape of our community through art. When you support our programs, 100% of your donation goes directly back into our community. You can designate your support to programs which you are passionate about, and help SAACA innovate news ways for the arts to transform the lives of people everywhere.
