Advocacy has one direction, FORWARD.
Since its inception, a basic tenet of ArtsKC’s mission is to serve as the voice of the nonprofit arts and culture sector of the Kansas City region.
Our advocacy work includes lobbying, education, writing policy, data collection, community engagement, and resource development. It is our hope that through effective dialogue and engagement with elected officials, the KC region can serve as an example to the country and the world of what it means to invest in the arts sector not only for its cultural enrichment, but also its economic dynamism and community enhancement.
Please use the resources on this page to aid your advocacy efforts or your own education. If you have any questions, please email Branden Haralson at BHaralson@ArtsKC.org.
