The City of Dubuque’s Arts and Culture Operating Support grant program recently awarded the Dubuque County Historical Society (DCHS) $30,000 for general operating support for fiscal year 2021. The mission of DCHS is to inspire stewardship by creating educational opportunities where history and rivers come alive.
As a steward of the region’s history, the organization has become a key community partner for humanities-based programming and informal learning. Serving local, state, and national audiences, DCHS’s goal is to curate exhibits and programs that best capture regional stories that are tethered to the global perspective, engage diverse audiences in immersive educational learning, and provide an equitable and accessible atmosphere in which all visitors can fully engage.
DCHS’s general operations, including exhibits and programming, are made possible – in part – through the City of Dubuque’s Arts and Culture Operating Support grant program.
