The City of Dubuque’s Arts and Culture Operating Support grant program recently awarded the Dubuque County Historical Society (DCHS) $28,000 for general operating support for fiscal year 2022.
As a steward of the region’s history, DCHS has become a key community partner for humanities-based programming and informal learning. Its mission is to inspire stewardship by creating educational opportunities where history and rivers come alive. The organization works to fulfill this mission while serving local, state, national, and international audiences, and it seeks to capture and relate regional stories to a global perspective. This work engages diverse audiences in immersive educational learning and provides an equitable and accessible atmosphere in which all visitors can fully engage.
DCHS’s general operations, including exhibits and programming, are supported—in part—through the City of Dubuque’s Arts and Culture Operating Support grant program. For more information on the organization and its work, visit rivermuseum.com or call 563-557-9545.
