Our mission is to provide tools and opportunities to create social change through art, culture and design.
Our vision is to empower community with skills needed to create social change through participation in urban development projects, having a voice through the arts, preserving cultural roots, and connecting to innovative skilled trades that are needed to provide true leadership/ownership.
OUR SYMBOLIC BRAID OF WORK FOCUS ON THE FOLLOWING THREE AREAS:
1. Create opportunities for economic development in the art community through the use of culture and skilled trades to identify and implement urban development projects. This allows for community members to be the designers and fabricators in the community.
2. Establish a model for future generations that will allow community and artists to have a strong voice by leading input in the arts, culture and design. This is vital when building communities through projects and development that involves the community while implementing their own vision.
3. Preserve our ancestral and cultural identity through the practice of our traditions while acknowledging the past and innovating through modern change. This will allow individuals to create new ideas into practice to meet new frontiers without jeopardizing our cultural past.
The Sagrado Galleria believes that art is an integral part of our lives and when shared in spaces that enable art to take center stage within the community it creates individual growth, cultural awareness and economic development. The Sagrado supports the artist community and promotes the importance of the inter-generational sharing of the arts while creating a platform for the further development of arts and culture in Phoenix. The Sagrado Galleria will continue to collaborate with artist to offer creative exposure to people of all ages in our community.
