Tucson Makers: Creating Change


Tucson Makers, presented by AIGA Arizona, is an annual fundraiser during Phoenix Design Week featuring fast-paced visual presentations by Tucson creatives. This year’s theme is Creating Change. From protest songs to editorial cartoons to political theater, art has long been a powerful tool to express dissent, influence policy, and inspire social action. Tucson is home to numerous artists and creatives whose work is motivated and inspired by local, national, and global issues. This year’s event is inspired by these courageous individuals, the political climate, and AIGA’s own Design for Good initiative.
