Des Moines European Heritage Association is pleased to announce that it has received an Art Project Grant from the Iowa Arts Council, a
division of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs. Grant funds will support the programming stage at Christkindlmarket Des Moines, December 2 – 4, 2016.
The Art Project Grant supports the creation and presentation of new artwork, development of an arts experience or formation of an arts education program. Project grants provide support to positively impact the vitality of the arts in Iowa by creating arts opportunities that are accessible to all Iowans. The Arts Project Grant will be used to support a variety of performances on the programming stage.
The Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs and its three divisions – the Iowa Arts Council, Produce Iowa-State Office of Media Production and the State Historical Society of Iowa – empower Iowa to build and sustain culturally vibrant communities by connecting Iowans to the people, places and points of pride that define our state. The department’s work enables Iowa to be recognized as a state that fosters creativity and serves as a catalyst for innovation where the stories of Iowa are preserved and communicated to connect past, present and future generations.
Des Moines European Heritage Association connects Iowans with European traditions, language education and cultural experiences; and it provides resources and tools to other cultural heritage organizations.
