Programs + Services

ArtsKC has developed programs and services designed to unleash the power of the arts. Programs support artists, arts organizations, the arts community at large, businesses, and services to the civic community. Each initiative was developed to address a need within our local arts ecology. ArtsKC continually assesses and adjusts our services to respond to the needs of our growing arts community.


A program designed to foster partnerships between visual artists and businesses by providing opportunities for metro-area artists to display their work in the conference rooms, lobbies and office spaces of local businesses.

ARTSKCGO.COM is a central repository of arts and cultural events, directories, and resources offered across the five-county region of the Kansas City metropolitan area.


ArtsKC Grants are investments in people, programs, and projects that make the arts more accessible, that sustain a vibrant arts community, and that recognize excellence, innovation, and entrepreneurship in the arts

at The Plaza Art Fair

Each year, ArtsKC partners with the Country Club Plaza to facilitate nonprofit arts and cultural organization participation in the Plaza Art Fair. This area of the Fair is designed to introduce new audiences to the diverse offerings of arts and cultural organizations in the region.


Located at the epicenter of the First Fridays movement on the corner of Southwest Blvd and Baltimore, the purpose of the ArtsKC gallery is to enrich the Crossroads Art District by providing the opportunity to view and engage with work by local Kansas City artists at all stages of their artistic career.


Arts Leadership Network events bring together arts administrators throughout the Kansas City region to connect, discuss industry trends, and collaborate on initiatives like audience development, diversity, and funding.

Sometimes we receive requests for sponsorship. ArtsKC cannot provide financial sponsorship. However, we are glad to learn more about your work and can offer support through our Programs.
