| October is "National Arts and Humanities Month"|
Broward County Commission’s Cultural Division joins hundreds of arts organizations and communities in celebrating National Arts and Humanities Month
during the month of October. The Broward Cultural Division will carry this message to the people of Broward County through activities that honor the efforts of artists, historians, and cultural groups working to make the arts and humanities a part of everyone’s life.
National Arts and Humanities Month is a coast-to-coast collective celebration of culture in America. Coordinated by Americans for the Arts, it has become the largest annual celebration of the arts and humanities in the nation. From arts center open houses, to mayoral proclamations, to banners and newspaper articles - communities across the U.S. make sure their citizens pay attention to the cultural gems surrounding them.
If you are planning special activities during the month of October, please contact the Broward Cultural Division’s marketing staff at 954-357-7320 so that you can be included in the publicity.
