Mission Statement

Canal Convergence’s mission is to provide an authentic and immersive art experience in and around Scottsdale’s canal.


Canal Convergence returns to the Scottsdale Waterfront for 2021 with a new central theme “Art & Technology.” More information about the selected artworks and the event coming soon!

Land Acknowledgement

We recognize that this event takes place on unceded and unsurrendered Indigenous homelands. We acknowledge the ancestors of the First Nations peoples of modern-day Arizona. The makeup of our current state is entirely shaped by these ancestors. In fact, the name “Arizona” comes from the word for “little spring” in the O’odham language. 

We also invest in the future of contemporary tribal members. As an arts and culture organization, it is our duty to uplift the artists and activists doing the work. We were honored to have multiple visual artists and performers, representing numerous tribes, taking part in Canal Convergence.
