Promoting Our Region, Our Artists, Our Organizations & Our Creative Energy


October is National Arts & Humanities Month

The Network will be showcasing the artists, organizations and events like you that drive arts, culture and our creative communities throughout October – National Arts & Humanities Month. This is a great time to promote our very creative region, each of you and the vibrant work your create – and raise awareness in our communities and among our leaders about the importance of arts, culture and the creative sector and to demonstrate our collective strength and voices. We plan to share with media, social media, and website – and ask you to help cross promote as well.
