|Every day we celebrate the arts, but October is the month to commemorate the arts in a big way. It is National Arts and Humanities Month—the largest annual celebration for the arts and humanities in the nation! |
National Arts and Humanities Month (NAHM) is a coast-to-coast collective recognition of the importance of culture in America. It is designed to encourage all Americans to explore new facets of the arts and humanities in their lives, and to begin a lifelong habit of active participation in the arts and humanities.
Want to join in the celebration? In Iowa’s Creative Corridor, we can celebrate NAHM by helping recognize the contributions of cultural organizations in our region. Every day, arts and cultural organizations act as economic drivers - supporting jobs, generating government revenue, and serving as the cornerstone of our tourism industry. The arts also provide joy to our daily lives through our participation. I hope you choose to be a part of this impact on our community by attending one of the many events that can be found right here on our website, under the Calendar tab.
