Presenting Sponsor:

Encounters presented by Mazuma Credit Union offer ArtsKC donors the chance to experience Kansas City’s vibrant arts community in new ways.

ArtsKC works with community partners to introduce donors to new arts organizations, exclusive performance and exhibition experiences, and unique networking opportunities. Experiences may include a tour at an artist’s studio, a glimpse of a dress rehearsal, or the chance to meet the directors, choreographers and technicians who make Kansas City’s performances magical.

Ready to experience the arts in KC?! Give today and start encountering more art in your community!
