Happy National Arts and Humanities Month!

October is National Arts and Humanties Month and we can all celebrate it by going to as many arts events or making as much art and sharing it with folks, as we can! Let your friends and family know, raise awareness about arts in your community, including your own! I know there are events coming up this month in dance, like Le Flash tomorrow night and SDC's Lunchtime and Salon on the 15th. There's a national map of events this month through Americans for the Arts and you can add your events there. They also have a list of 101 things you can do to celebrate, including #65 "take a modern dance class." I've added the NAHM logo to the bottom of my emails and added it to the SDC website.


  1. As part of National Arts & Humanities Month, The Rialto Center for the Arts is hosting An Arts Resource Market on Monday, October 5th, 1pm-3pm.

    Representatives of local organizations who fund the arts and/or provide services to arts organizations will be available to answer your questions about their programs and chat one-on-one. Organizations represented include the Fulton County Arts Council, Metropolitan Atlanta Arts Fund, Southern Arts Federation, and the Georgia Council for the Arts.

    Admission to this event is free, but advance registration is required.

  2. Thanks, for the info Jenna! I didn't mean to overlook this event, it's a great resource for local artists. And I'm planning on attending the social media workshop on Oct. 9 that's part of the programming for Arts and Humanities Month as well.
