On September 21st, we are collaborating with Cahokia to host our 2021 Fall Equinox Fundraiser, an annual celebration to honor new seasons, celebrate new ideas and reconnect as a creative and collaborative community…𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒚𝒐𝒖’𝒓𝒆 𝒊𝒏𝒗𝒊𝒕𝒆𝒅!
The Fall Equinox Fundraiser symbolizes the start of change: entering new beginnings and recognizing the importance of exploring new ways to serve this ever-growing arts district. Tickets are on sale now, with early bird prices ending Sunday, September 12th.
To keep guests healthy and safe, proof of vaccination is requested. Masks will be provided.
VIP tickets include a commemorative, framed poster by Phoenix artist and designer Jeremy Arviso (Diné/ Hopi/ Pima/ Tohono O’odham)! Posters available onsite for purchase.
Guests will enjoy live music from New Groove, mingling with local community members while exploring the new Cahokia space and have an opportunity to participate in a silent mural auction featuring art from UNCONTAINED mural artists Jesse Yazzie (Diné/ Navajo), Danny Upshaw (Diné/ Navajo) and Zachary Justin (Akimel O’odham).
Plus, our honorary guest speaker Councilwoman Yassamin Ansari will share her story around seasons of change, the importance of creativity in urban spaces and the value of collaboration.
The event includes delicious hors d’oeuveres by Conceptually Social Catering, local crafted beer by AZ Wilderness DTPHX, along with fine wine and spirit options.
With your help, this arts district can continue evolving into a dense, diverse and walkable community, building a more vibrant and inclusive urban environment in downtown Phoenix.
