National Arts & Humanities Month (NAHM) is a coast-to-coast collective recognition of the importance of culture in America. Since 1985, the month of October has been designated to encourage all Americans to explore new facets of the arts and humanities in their lives, and to begin a lifelong habit of active participation in the arts. See the 2015 White House Presidential Proclamation here.

Thanks to everyone who participated in 2015 National Arts & Humanities Month! See a storify of the great photo #ShowYourArt highlights from this year's social media side of the campaign below!

Also, it's never too late to host a NEW Do-It-Yourself Community Visioning Forum, Creative Conversation, Open House, Special Performance, or other.
