The Office of Arts and Culture supports a range of creative youth development programs. Young people thrive when they have opportunities to maximize their creative potential. National research shows that creative youth development supports young people in developing the personal, social, and intellectual skills that are critical to success in life, school, and work.
The Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture's arts learning programs are part of the Office's Community Investments and Engagement portfolio. Funding is provided by the City Council, the Arizona Commission on the Arts, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
