In conjunction with the 50th Anniversary, Americans for the Arts asks why the arts matter to you with the announcement of the Why Arts Matter Video Contest. Celebrate the arts in America by creating a video that tells "Why Arts Matter" to you.

The winning video will be shown on the MTV 44 1/2 screen in Times Square, letting you share your story with thousands of people.

Check your calendars for October events!

In towns and communities across America, arts organizations are planning and developing events, celebrations and innovative programming to highlight National Arts and Humanities Month. Throughout the month of October, special events will capture the spirit that the arts and humanities bring to everyday life. In particular, cultural organizations are being asked to do the following:
Plan to participate in the month-long celebration with an already-scheduled activity or a new event, large or small, that will be free and open to the public. Events could include a free performance, lecture or reading; a behind-the-scenes tour, a workshop, a concert or a festival. An open house is a great way to invite the community to join with your organization in celebrating the month.
