October is National Arts and Humanities Month (NAHM) – a coast-to-coast collective recognition of the importance of culture in America. NAHM was launched by Americans for the Arts 30 years ago as National Arts Week in honor of the twentieth anniversary of the National Endowment for the Arts. In 1993, it was reestablished by Americans for the Arts and national arts partners as a month-long celebration, with goals of:
FOCUSING on the arts at local, state, and national levels;
ENCOURAGING individuals and organizations to participate in the arts;
ALLOWING governments and businesses to show their support of the arts; and
RAISING public awareness about the role the arts and humanities play in our communities and lives.
We have a TON of exciting events planned this October to celebrate National Arts & Humanities month. Check out what's happening on campus and in our community!
Calling all filmmakers! The Riverwalk Short Film & Video Festival is seeking submissions. Enter by June 23!
