Good Night, Dubuque!
After 4 years of soup dinners, funding 24 projects, raising $11,685, building an all-arts network, putting money behind projects that needed a little faith, and slurping soup, we're closing our doors.
|Art Gumbo Dubuque 2010-2014|
We have much to be proud of in our little river town. Together we contributed to the cultivation of one of the most vibrant arts communities in Iowa. None of this was possible without each of you who showed up, put your money in the pool, bought a bowl, carried tables, donated; copies, spoons, time, tech, venues, soup, signage, and loaned us your 501 (c) (3) status when we needed funding. We are a WE because of YOU.
|We set some gorgeous tables.|
|YOU filled them with YES!|
Fear not! The City of Dubuque has created a funding stream for cultural vibrancy that does not require a 501 (c) (3) status. Check out Sustainable Dubuque's funding cycle.
Megan Starr and Paula Neuhaus continue to create, promote, and breathe life into our community. We're still here. We're just wearing different hats. Keep the fires burning, kids. We're counting on YOU.
