ArtsKC leads two Arts Sector Assembly Initiatives. The first is a region-wide Focused Annual Initiative that addresses a critical issue that requires strong partnerships and a longer outlook. The second is a series of responsive and timely Current Topic Assemblies. These Current Topic events allow ArtsKC to respond to relevant issues and recruit industry experts to lead conversations, develop formalized key take-aways, and equip arts leaders to tackle important challenges in the field.

Wallace Foundation: Audience Engagement

In November 2016, ArtsKC hosted the Wallace Foundation to launch their recently completed Audience Engagement research and thus began its focused initiatives. ArtsKC brought together over 100 arts leaders in the region to consider the research accomplished by the Wallace Foundation and learn from other arts organizations throughout the nation.

In October 2017, ArtsKC hosted a two-day convening with Randy Cohen, Director of Research from Americans for the Arts at the Kauffman Conference Center.

It involved a large convening and a series of smaller meetings and ongoing presentations to educate the community as a State of the Arts Industry Overview.
