AZArtBeat stories featured on Ch. 8


Arts festivals, dance performances and music


workshops staged by Mesa Arts Center will now touch Arizonans of all ages, thanks to a new series of AZArtBeat programs appearing through mid-July on KAET-TV Channel 8, Arizona PBS. The Phoenix-based Flinn Foundation has funded the PBS documentaries on Mesa Arts Center’s education and community outreach efforts. The AZArtBeat segments focusing on Mesa Arts Center include themed stories broadcast individually on KAET’s Arizona Horizon at 5:30 p.m. Upcoming segments include: a look at the


center’s residency/performance program with Los Angeles-based Latino dance company, Contra Tiempo, airing on June 14; and Mesa Takes Flight, spotlighting a festival culminating in a yearlong celebration of aviation, aerospace and all things flight-related, on air June 28. The special Mesa Arts Center segments


conclude with the July 19 program, “Jazz from A to Z,” featuring a partnership between the Mesa Arts Center, Arizona State University’s Public History Department, Mesa Public Schools and Jazz at Lincoln Center. This program demonstrates how jazz is being used to help teach history in the classroom and how music students and their teachers have benefited from jazz workshops and other learning opportunities. The segments also will be broadcast together as a special program airing in September. For more information about Mesa Arts


Center’s educational outreach programs, contact Mandy Buscas at 480-644-6609 or mandy.buscas@mesaartscenter.com.
