Curating Creativity

February—it’s the shortest month of the year, but there’s definitely no shortage of exciting things happening here in Chandler! When thinking of ideas for our Arts + Makers issue, we were inspired by the talented local creatives who beautify our community with their work. Whether it’s local theater performances, improv shows or musical performances, we were inspired by the creative culture in our city.

Some of our favorite arts-related things to experience in the area include live music, comedy shows, concerts and more.

In addition to places to experience the arts, we feature some truly inspiring people who have followed their dreams to create. Plus, in a nod to February’s Valentine’s Day, singer Kira Brown, who is pictured on our cover (her first EP comes out this month!), even shares a list of some of her personal favorite tunes for Valentine’s Day.

We hope you find inspiration in these pages. Consider this issue your guide to all things creative, and hit the town to unleash your own creativity!
