As stated on their website, SMAHC "seeks to encourage the growth and development of the arts and humanities in SW Minnesota by serving as a source of funds and technical services which enable local organizations, educational institutions and individuals to sponsor and/or create and promote the arts and humanities in their communities."
At SMSU, we appreciate all the financial support SMAHC has given over the years to fund visiting writers and writing festivals.
I receive their bi-monthly Voices newsletter by email, a great way to keep up to date on local arts events and opportunities. Below is an upcoming event I encourage others to attend. Florence is a gifted writer and teacher.
