A spotlight and ticket for all at Summer of the Arts.

Summer of the Arts is dedicated to combating inequality, bias, and exclusion in Iowa City and beyond. We stand with marginalized communities, striving for greater understanding and empathy through inclusive art and performance. Our commitment includes accepting everyone regardless of race, religion, gender, or ability while actively condemning injustice and violence. We pledge resources to improve interactions with marginalized groups and prioritize creating just, equitable, and inclusive spaces through the power of the arts. We believe in ongoing collaboration and education to drive meaningful change, inviting all voices. Artists of every kind have a spot on our stage, and every person has a seat in our audience.

We see you. We hear you. And more than ever before, we stand with you.
