We are Tucson-based designers, artists, creatives, and programmers. Our goal is to help connect people for collaboration, learning and opportunity.

The Tucson Digital Arts Community is a place for digital artists and other like-minded creatives to come together. We organize social gatherings once a month to help facilitate new connections between diverse professionals.

Currently we’re in the process of scheduling workshops where members may share their specialties with others. To find out more visit the events listings.
