About the Northeast Iowa Regional Art and Cultural Council
The Northeast Iowa Regional Art and Cultural Council was launched in 2013, under the auspices of Northeast Iowa Resource Conservation & Development (RC&D). Northeast Iowa RC&D and the Council are working with partners from across the state to assist in creating, supporting and sustaining an effort to unite the vast array of cultural assets in multi-county regions of Iowa. A state-wide planning consortium of Iowa’s RC&D’s, the University of Iowa, and the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs was developed to bring support and assistance to Iowa’s rural communities. This effort is bringing historical societies and sites, artists, cultural groups, and other diverse interests together to examine the potential for the region and develop and implement a plan to build the capacity of and enhance history, art, and culture regionally. The Council’s vision is to encourage, support, and strengthen history, art, and culture in Northeast Iowa by providing a platform that enables community members, interested citizens, and even those living outside the Northeast Iowa area to support the sites, organizations, and resources of the region.
