Celebrate this year’s National Arts in Education Week! September 11–17, 2016
Designated by Congress in 2010, the third week in September is a national celebration of the transformative power of the arts in education. Over the course of September 11–17, celebrate arts education in events across the country; advocate to federal, state, and local decision-makers; and participate in visibility campaigns on social media using #ArtsEdWeek. Americans for the Arts will also host a series of professional development opportunities on ArtsU. For more information, contact Arts Education Program Manager Jeff Poulin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
OCTOBER IS NATIONAL ARTS & HUMANITIES MONTH
The arts are a part of our lives every day, but we take all 31 days in October to commemorate the arts in a big way! National Arts & Humanities Month is the largest annual celebration of the arts and humanities in the United States. October may seem far away, but it’s never too early to start planning the celebration in your community. Our website offers resources and tools to establish a Do-It-Yourself Community Visioning Forum, host a Creative Conversation, or partner with a local arts venue on an open house or a special performance. Follow NAHM on Facebook for the latest updates on the national celebration, including a special social media challenge coming October 1, and to share your ideas and events with our followers.
