Help us tell the story of the value of the arts in Mesa, our state and the nation.
At select performances and experiences now through April 30, you may be asked to complete a short anonymous survey asking about your arts experience and arts spending. This will help us measure the economic and social impact of arts and culture on the City of Mesa and roll up into a national study by Americans for the Arts!
Please consider taking this short three-minute survey! Your answers will be completely anonymous and will help us illustrate some of the many ways the arts make a difference for individuals and communities.
