Since 2004, the Marshall County Arts & Culture Alliance has significantly evolved and transformed to have the highest impact on our community. Furthermore, our community has changed tremendously over the last few years. Alongside the development of the Arts & Culture Master Plan, we went through our own strategic planning process to ensure we were perfectly positioned to implement the master plan.

Through our planning process, we saw an opportunity to align, simplify and modernize our brand. We are thrilled to announce we will now go by Arts + Culture Alliance. In addition to the revised name, we have updated our mission, vision, functions and value statements based on input from community engagement. Although we may look a little different, our commitment to creatively meeting the needs of our growing community remains constant.

VISION – Creativity is at the heart of a thriving and vibrant Marshalltown

MISSION – Lead the development of a creative community through arts and culture

We will accomplish our mission and vision through our core functions: Connect, Advocate and Celebrate. We CONNECT the community by being the bridge builder for our community by collaborating and cultivating relationships. We ADVOCATE by promoting the value and necessity of arts and culture. We CELEBRATE by engaging and amplifying the local arts and culture community.

Cities that weave arts and culture into the fabric of daily life become a destination for visitors. They drive economic prosperity. They become regional focal points. But most importantly, they bloom into a springboard of imagination and a creative home for their own residents. All of us are the creative community.

All of us are the creative community. TakepART with us!
