Arts Month Proclamations

Arts Advocacy

Each year, Arts Month creates the perfect opportunity to advocate in support of our region’s arts & cultural community. Since the start of our annual celebration in 2014, the Cultural Office has secured official Arts Month proclamations from a number of city and county governments, as well as several local school districts. 


Requesting Arts Month proclamations from local municipalities is part of the Cultural Office’s ongoing effort to cultivate strong working relationships with our elected leaders, to highlight the importance of our creative sector, and to raise awareness for the Arts Month celebration that takes place across the Pikes Peak region each October.

2023 Proclamation Schedule

Arts Month proclamation presentations are conducted during scheduled, public meetings; usually towards the beginning of the agenda. Local artists, arts supporters, and interested community members are encouraged to attend either of these brief proclamation readings to lend their support for arts & culture in our region.
