The Collaborative Community Engagement Program

Scottsdale Arts’ Collaborative Community Engagement Program (CCEP) is a new program that enables and encourages local artistic and professional development in Stage 2 of Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts.

Phase one of the program is now open for submissions, and will run through January 30, 2020.

The CCEP will be chiefly programmed through a competitive application process open to nonprofit organizations, independent producers, and producing collectives.
