National Arts & Humanities Month: October!
National Arts and Humanities Month is right around the corner! It’s time to start planning how your organization or community will celebrate National Arts and Humanities Month this October. We’ve got everything you need to plan and promote a celebration in your community, so join us in the largest annual celebration for the arts and humanities in the nation!
National Arts and Humanities Month (NAHM) is a coast-to-coast celebration of the importance of culture in America, designed to encourage all Americans to explore new facets of the arts and humanities in their lives. What part will you play?
Will you hold an event or open house at your arts center? Have you considered hosting a Creative Conversation or planning a live arts performance? Whatever way you choose to celebrate NAHM, Americans for the Arts offers a number of new tools to help you showcase the arts in your community.
Visit our website to find tips for planning and promoting your event. If you already have an arts activity planned, be sure to register it on the National Arts and Humanities Month Calendar to generate additional buzz and to connect with others in your community. And don't forget to share your celebration through social media: like us on Facebook, use the #NAHM hashtag on Twitter, and share your photos from your events on Flickr with the NAHM tag.
