The Mayor's Task Force for the Arts is designed to address the need for a public aspect to the development and promotion of the city's cultural framework. The work of this Task Force and resulting report will create a path for the city toward deeper engagement with the citizens of Kansas City that will make the arts more purposeful, rewarding, and meaningful for our community.
This Envision Arts and Culture KC planning project aims to find out what you and your fellow citizens think about arts and culture in the community. Planning sessions are community conversations, led by volunteers, where small groups of citizens meet to talk about the arts and culture in your community - what are people doing now? What types of arts and culture events do you enjoy? What do you want to see in the future? What are the priorities?
Several Artist INC fellows are volunteer facilitators and agreed that organizing a conversation of other Artist INC fellows would be a great opportunity for the voices of artists to be front and center in this process. As the kick-off session, Mayor Sly James will be joining us to launch this campaign, so make plans to attend this event so that you can be heard and help determine the future of the arts & culture in Kansas City.
