ArtWORKS PHX is a Phoenix Community Alliance member-driven campaign to both showcase and inspire business engagement with the arts – because it’s good for business, good for employees, and good for Greater Phoenix.
Employees want to work and live in vibrant communities
Partnerships with local theaters, museums, dancers and artists make your business more attractive to future employees, and greater Phoenix more attractive future
Engaging with the arts can help your business stand out
In this age of information overload, partnerships with the arts can help you share your organization’s story in new and meaningful ways, and gain attention as a standout in your industry.
The arts bring out the best in your employees
People who work in creative work environments are more likely to be loyal, proud and satisfied employees. Give them a creative nudge by hosting art and music talent shows; rewarding them with tickets to local arts events; or encouraging them to volunteer.
The arts foster an environment that embraces cultural differences
Artistic expression opens eyes, ears and minds to cultural differences and starts meaningful conversations. A commitment to the arts lets people inside and outside of your organization know that your workplace values and embraces diversity.
The arts stimulate creativity and critical thinking
Creativity is a highly valued skill when employers are hiring. When you integrate art into the workplace, you’ll stimulate critical thinking, reveal new insights, encourage problem solving. Most importantly, you’ll also attract employees who already possess those skills.
