University of Iowa Arts Share continues the long tradition of sharing arts resources at The University of Iowa with the greater Iowa community. Through outreach efforts in collaboration with the Division of Performing Arts (Music, Dance, Theatre Arts), the School of Art and Art History, and the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, it is the goal of Arts Share to strengthen the arts, providing access to life-enriching arts experiences throughout Iowa.
Arts Share has coordinated events in 84 of Iowa’s 99 counties, including many rural and diverse communities, and it is our goal to reach all counties in Iowa. Each academic year, over 300 events are coordinated through Arts Share, serving over 10,000 people. Workshops and performances take place in K-12 schools, community colleges, libraries, museums, hospitals, retirement homes, and performance venues. We find that once an organization discovers Arts Share, they often utilize the program year after year.
