ON Media is committed to contributing to the health and vitality of our community. The arts, culture and leisure sectors are essential to our state’s ability to create an environment of innovation and sustainability. The arts are an economic asset that stimulates business activity, attracts tourism revenue, retains a high-quality work force and stabilizes property values. In partnership with a robust marketplace, each sector contributes to the competitive edge and cultural capital of Arizona.
Year after year, ON Media is proud to have stayed true to the company’s original goal: Provide publications at no charge to our arts and cultural partners, so they can devote their limited resources to fulfilling their artistic and educational missions.
For more than four decades, ON Media has offered full publishing support—including superior design, expert sales and marketing and engaging editorial content.
In fact, this strong reputation for excellence led them to become the official publisher for Arizona’s most prestigious arts and cultural organizations, partnering with 20 performing arts venues, publishing The Red Book and managing ads for the iconic Arizona Highways magazine.
ON Media publications engage discerning readers and enhance their experience.
They also optimize participation, drive interest and increase awareness of our arts partners and valued advertisers.
ON Media actively supports nonprofit organizations that work to improve our community’s quality of life. The “show would not go on” without the incredible support and dedication of those who champion the arts—behind the scenes, in the box office and in communities across Arizona.
DO YOU KNOW AN ARTS HERO?
ON Media is currently seeking nominations to help honor outstanding individuals in the arts community. An Arts Hero will be selected monthly throughout the performing arts season and be featured in ON Media programs, which are seen by more than 3 million arts patrons in Arizona. This allows individuals to tell their incredible stories, so others can applaud their hard work in the arts.

ACT ONE FIELD TRIPS
In Arizona, schools increasingly do not have funds for educational arts field trips. This is especially the case for Title 1 schools in low-income communities. Each year, thanks to the generosity of donors across the state, Act One provides an opportunity for more than 40,000 children in lower-income schools to experience arts performances and exhibitions through field trips to professional theaters and museums.
Founded in 2011 by Mac and Russ Perlich, Act One is governed by a board of directors and managed by a small professional staff. Act One’s programs have grown to provide access to the arts for more than 530,000 children and families in Arizona each year.
ACT ONE CULTURE PASS
The Act One Culture Pass offers library card holders complimentary tickets or admission to participating cultural destinations. The pass is designed to bring the enrichment and education of performing and visual arts to families and individuals who would not be able to afford it otherwise. In the years since the pass was created, millions of passes have been checked out of local libraries and used by patrons to access the arts.
