Last night, the Dubuque Arts Council was thrilled to be presented with a 365ink Impact Award for nonprofit excellence. The 365ink Impact Awards, sponsored by The Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque and Premier Bank, are given to those who choose to make an effort to impact the world around them 365 days a year.
This event recognizes those who believe in our community and are willing to do something to make it better for everyone, spotlighting their efforts in the following categories: Arts, Nightlife, Dining, Tourism, Education, Government, Sustainability, Historic Preservation, Music, Shopping, Sports & Recreation, Non Profit Excellence, Volunteerism, Social Space, Youth Advocacy, Anti-Bullying, Teens, Media, Best Business Impact, Best Individual Impact and Best Idea.
Through our programming efforts, our members aim to increase the community’s appreciation and knowledge related to music, performance art, the world and other cultures, and the differences between themselves and others in the greater Dubuque community. We could not accomplish our mission or execute our programs without funding from private contributions or the support we receive from the Dubuque Arts & Cultural Affairs Advisory Commission and grants from groups like the Woodward Foundation, Dubuque Racing Association, and the Iowa Arts Council.
