The Surdna Foundation awarded a $250,000 grant to the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts at Arizona State University as part of its Thriving Cultures grant program.
The Surdna Foundation seeks to foster sustainable communities in the United States – communities guided by principles of social justice and distinguished by healthy environments, strong local economies and thriving cultures. Its Thriving Cultures program celebrates the belief that “communities with robust arts and culture are more cohesive and prosperous, and benefit from the diversity of their residents,” according to the Surdna website.
The grant was awarded to support the Creative Communities Institute, a partnership with the Arizona Commission on the Arts and prototype for a comprehensive strategy to cultivate, facilitate, measure and visualize new intersections between the arts, ASU, and the larger communities of Arizona.
