Introducing the Heartland Arts & Culture Collective. In August 2020, Hutchinson celebrated 12 years of art, music, and community in the form of our beloved monthly gatherings, Third Thursday. In celebration of this anniversary, the HRAH Council introduced the Heartland Arts and Culture Collective (HACC). HACC serves as an umbrella title for the region to unite around its arts and heritage. The existence of an arts collective responds to a community-identified goal of greater opportunity for shared identity, action, and support. HRAH maintains a registry of the incredible Reno County arts and cultural network, including:

Musician + Performing Artists

Visual Artists

Regional Arts + Cultural Organizations + Venues

Arts + Cultural Educators

Audio / Video Professionals

HACC Community Arts Resources
