Diverse cultural festivals and programs in the state will be offered online thanks to a grant provided to the Cultural Coalition, Inc.
Arizona Humanities rapid-response grant program, funded by the Congressional CARES Act via the National Endowment for the Humanities, has provided $7,620 to the Phoenix-based non-profit coalition. The Cultural Coalition has been supporting indigenous artists and encouraging youth arts education for more than 25 years.
The grant money will allow the Cultural Coalition to offer cultural festivals and programs to people around Arizona through online platforms while also helping to sustain community engagement with local artists. There will be recorded videos and livestream events on Facebook and YouTube including “The Portal to the Past” event, which would have been held at Pueblo Grande Museum in Phoenix. The grant also will support “The Artist Chat” series, where Valley artists offer tours of their studios.
Cultural Coalition, Inc. is one of 58 non-profit cultural and humanities organizations in Arizona given money to help with financial struggles that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused. To learn more, visit culturalcoalition.com.
