Tucson Makers, presented by AIGA Arizona, is an annual fundraiser during Phoenix Design Week featuring fast-paced visual presentations by Tucson creatives. This year’s theme, Creating Creators, is inspired by the recent Red for Ed movement. Art educators play a critical role in ensuring their disciplines will carry on to the next generation.
