Kansas City is driven by creativity. Authentic, innovative and inviting, Kansas City is a thriving national hub for arts and culture. Sparked by energy and ingenuity that spans multiple generations, sectors and industries, Kansas City is “America’s Creative Crossroads.”

Did you know we have a legacy of artistic and entrepreneurial innovation spanning more than 125 years? Today, the Kansas City metropolitan area has one of America’s most inventive and creative cultures.  A new collaborative campaign, titled America’s Creative Crossroads, highlights the Kansas City area as an intersection of artistry and technology.  It is designed to elevate the Kansas City region in the minds of potential residents, visitors, talented professionals and businesses. America’s Creative Crossroads is working to put Kansas City on the map, to make our region a lifestyle and business destination, as well as a hotbed for top talent.


In 2010, with the opening of the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts on the horizon, ArtsKC, along with the Kansas City Area Development Council, the Kansas City Convention and Visitors Association, the Downtown Council, the Arts Council of Johnson County, and the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce, developed this collaborative regional messaging platform.  The mission of this campaign is to attract more visitors, residents, businesses, to participate and benefit from arts and culture in the Kansas City region.


The America’s Creative Crossroads campaign invites you to explore the website, tweet about being creative in Kansas City using hashtag #creativekc and like the Facebook page.
