Applications now due by 11:59pm, Thursday, March 26
Last year, the Arizona Commission on the Arts and Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust, in partnership with the Institute of Sustainable Communities, developed a five-month engagement process that successfully gathered information from community leaders and local creative aging experts to articulate and define a set of strategies unique to Arizona. Researchapalooza was developed out of this process and in response to these collective strategies.

What is AZ Creative Aging Researchapalooza?
AZ Creative Aging Researchapalooza is a year-long data collection and research challenge focused on gathering data about existing creative aging programs and their participants.

It is also a capacity-building program for teaching artists, arts organizations and health/aging organizations with a serious and committed interest in strengthening existing Creative Aging programs through research and development efforts.
