VI Council on the Arts Leads Celebration of Arts and Humanities Month

October is National Arts & Humanities Month (submitted calendar of events)

Governor Albert Bryan Jr. has declared that October is National Arts & Humanities Month (NAHM), a coast-to-coast collective recognition of the importance of culture in America. Each year since 1993, NAHM has helped give millions of Americans the opportunity to explore new facets of the arts and humanities in their lives and has encouraged them to begin a lifelong habit of active participation.

National Arts and Humanities Month’s four primary goals are to:

  • create a national, state and local focus on the arts and humanities through the media
  • encourage the active participation of individuals as well as arts, humanities and other interested organizations nationwide
  • provide an opportunity for federal, state and local business, government and civic leaders to declare their support for the arts and humanities
  • establish a highly visible vehicle for raising public awareness about the arts and humanities.

This year, the Virgin Islands Council on the Arts (VICA) will celebrate the month by hosting a month-long schedule of activities to include a Back to School Supply Drive Through, two virtual concerts, and more.

Attached, please find the schedule of activities and calendar.

Unlike many news organizations, we haven't put up a paywall - we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. Our sites are more popular than ever, but advertising revenues are falling - so you can see why we could use your help. Our independent journalism costs time, money and hard work to keep you informed, but we do it because we believe that it matters. If everybody who appreciates our reporting efforts were to help fund it for as little as $1, our future would be much more secure. Thanks in advance for your support!
