A YEAR IN REVIEW – 2023
Friends of the Arts,
It was another vibrant and impactful year for the Arts + Culture Alliance. Together, with countless community partners, we began the implementation of the 10-year Arts & Culture Master Plan. It is our greatest priority to implement the Master Plan, to ensure creativity is at the heart of a thriving and vibrant Marshalltown.
As we look to 2024 and beyond, we are enthusiastic and passionate about leading the development of a creative community through arts and culture. We believe cities that weave arts and culture into the fabric of daily life become a destination for visitors, drive economic prosperity and become a regional focal point. But most importantly, they bloom into a springboard of imagination and a creative home for their residents.
The creative community is who we are, how we work and play and what we love. It takes all of us to make a vibrant and welcoming Marshalltown, alive with arts and authentic cultural opportunities. We are all the creative community and we invite you to takepART.
Together, with your support, we can create opportunities for a thriving and vibrant community. Thank you for being a supporter of the arts!
Amber Danielson, Executive Director
