Iowa Arts Summit - Virtual Conference


The biennial Iowa Arts Summit features dynamic breakout sessions with presentations by leading state and national voices in the arts. Hear from Iowa's most creative minds and learn how they are transforming their organizations and communities. The summit brings together artists, filmmakers, creative entrepreneurs, non-profit professionals and community leaders for a day of networking, learning and celebrating the arts in Iowa.

The 2020 Iowa Arts Summit will virtually gather Iowa's creative industry professionals on August 7. In the wake of a global pandemic and amid the movement for civil rights, the way we create, present, and interact with art has changed. At the summit, connect with arts leaders across the state to discover how Iowa's creative sector can embrace this new relationship with art and boldly redefine the art world together.

Sessions will be led by speakers who designed innovative ways to reinvent the art world to not just return to "normal" post-pandemic, but to strengthen the creative sector so it can flourish. The Iowa Arts Summit will also feature streaming entertainment, virtual tours and demonstrations by Iowa artists, opportunities to collaborate on interactive arts projects, and the presentation of the Governor's Arts Awards.
