The Arts, Culture & Public Life Committee convenes both stakeholders and advocates for supporting and partnering with the arts to attract talent, maximize business innovation, advance an inclusive city, foster placemaking, and escalate community and economic development in Phoenix.

 

By connecting PCA Members to critical cultural assets, the Committee further positions and promotes Phoenix’s commitment to building an economically diverse, world-class city.
