INTRODUCING SHFT: AZ art when you want it every Thursday live and online 6:00 - 7:00 pm.
TCA is excited to announce SHFT: AZ art when you want it, a new summer series of free online performances and interactive programming starting July 2nd.
During this time of social distancing, we are "shifting" in-person experiences so they may be enjoyed online. Our weekly, Thursday evening series will showcase Tempe and Arizona artists and range in genre from jazz to funk, and dance to acoustic performances. Series artists will reflect the diversity of our community including black, indigenous, and other artists of color and culture. Discover and connect with local Arizona musicians, artists, and poets as they perform live and online.
Join us Thursday evenings from 6:00—7:00 pm through Tempe Center for the Arts’ Facebook page for a host of incredible and varied cultural and music experiences.
Check back often for updates to the schedule.
