Accomplishments

Collaboration Through ArtsWhere: Arizona-Sonora
What: Collaboration through Arts Promotes Community Health
Pillars: Advocacy
The AMC is tackling community health initiatives through its Arts & Culture committee. In partnership with the Arizona Commission on the Arts, the committee has developed a brief residency program to address the subject of obesity and promote healthy living through dance. This program is an example of AMC committee work crossing over. Arts expression through dance promotes preservation of culture while it also promotes health in the community.
