The arts mean business: The arts account for a QUARTER OF A BILLION dollars in economic impact for the Kansas City region.

The arts are a growing sector: Kansas City has over 250 arts nonprofits and over 350 arts related businesses. Our creative economy accounts for 4.2% of the business share, almost twice the national average.

Kansas Citians are passionate about the arts: We participate at higher levels than the national average and in fact, more than the average New Yorker! Johnson County’s participation numbers are in the 4% nationwide.
