WHO WE WORK WITH
At MXD Arts, we work with nonprofits, NGOs, cultural influencers, creative professionals, and social enterprises.
We work closely with our clients to identify their needs and develop a plan for making their vision a reality. Then we get to work. Our engagements can last anywhere from a single day to several months. However long we spend with you, the effects will be lasting.
We are based in Phoenix, Arizona, but we work with clients all over the country (and world!)
We understand nonprofits, their limited resources and capacity. We know how to work with the unique challenges of nonprofit business and meaningful missions. Our experience with nonprofits uniquely positions us to co-create long-term plans for implementation rather than a single touch-point. We stay connected with our clients because we know in this ecosystem each organization depends on others.
