New collaboration around arts news publication: Heartland Heartbeat.

Heartland Heartbeat is an arts and culture news resource created by arts administrative leaders in 2021. Today, Hutchinson creatives collaborate on the curation and publication of monthly news with support from Hutch Rec. The Heartbeat is a project that supports the Heartland Arts & Culture Collective in achieving shared identity and action for arts communities. New issue coming August 11th.
