Program and background:
“Tempe Screened” is an arts engagement event of the City of Tempe Arts & Culture (TAC) program. This year, TAC worked with local artists to forge strong relationships with community, provide mentorship for emerging event organizers, and offer programming to engage and invite new and diverse communities to the Tempe Center for the Arts.
Justin Stewart and Evan Liggins, Tempe filmmakers and music presenters, were chosen for the “Tempe Screened” project because of the quality of work demonstrated during the 2018 Arts in the Park program and their active involvement in the Tempe arts & culture community. The project continues to connect arts and culture to community by looking at the everyday life of Tempe through eyes of artists and with the voices of citizens.
In this project, Tempeans share their stories in a documentary film about Tempe. The documentary will be produced by Justin Stewart who has a degree in Film. Also coordinating the “Tempe Screened” experience is Evan Liggins, who is known locally for his role as the booking manager at Yucca Taproom and for creating and coordinating “Tempe Art A Gogh-Gogh” since 2010.
