The Art of Compassion Celebration

Compassion is at the core of the thirty-plus programs offered to Iowans by EveryStep care & support services.  EveryStep's Art of Compassion Celebration celebrates acts of compassion as expressed through creative arts. 

At the the Art of Compassion Celebration, attendees enjoy a dinner, short program, auctions, engaging activities and sponsorship recognition.  All proceeds benefit the non-profit programs and services of EveryStep.

Our Theme: "Comm-You-nity" 

EveryStep's Art of Compassion initiative brings to the forefront the care, empathy and financial support needed for effective community-based care of Iowa’s individuals and families. Each year, the Art of Compassion initiative and culminating dinner event reflect a theme that celebrates the union of art and compassion. This year's theme, "Comm-You-nity", reflects the idea that it takes a village to spread love, hope and healing. 

Comm-You-nity Clubhouses Public Art Project

EveryStep's Art of Compassion Celebration dinner event on Oct. 10 follows our Comm-You-nity public art project.  The public art project features creatively designed "clubhouses" inspired by the feelings and experiences of EveryStep's patients, clients and their families. Visitors can step into the clubhouses as they connect and support the people of our community through art, empathy and play.
