To unleash the power of the arts.
We will build a city of great dreams and vigorous life, where everyone participates in and benefits from the arts.
We Promote, Support and Advocate for the arts.
We are a nonprofit organization serving the five-county region- Clay, Platte and Jackson in Missouri; Johnson and Wyandotte in Kansas.
However, our programs and services are not limited to just these core initiatives! ArtsKC aims to connect individuals to their arts community by providing detailed information in our online Resource Center. In addition, we work with local government and civic leadership to advocate for the arts.
To get started, we recommend viewing our video or visiting us in person by attending First Friday.

ArtsKC – Regional Arts Council is a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
Charitable donations are tax-deductible. Our EIN is 43-1840674.
ArtsKC – Regional Arts Council was founded in February 1999. ArtsKC was started as a result of a community-wide planning process facilitated by the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation and supported by the Muriel McBrien Kauffman Foundation. ArtsKC has developed programs and services designed to “unleash the power of the arts.” This includes programs for the arts community, the business community, and services to the civic community. Today, we serve Johnson and Wyandotte counties in Kansas, and Jackson, Clay, and Platte counties in Missouri.
ArtsKC acts as a central hub of information, resources, and support. Each specific program or service we provide to artists, arts organizations or the community at large 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.
ArtsKC serves as the voice for the arts in civic dialogues. By working closely with both the arts and business communities, we keep informed of challenges and provide a forum for the community to discuss current issues and opportunities. ArtsKC promotes networking, learning, and collaboration among the arts and business communities.
Kansas City is one of the largest regions in the United States that does not have an established source of dedicated public funding for the arts, which is crucial to the long-term health of our arts community. Securing sustainable public funding for the arts is a long-term goal of ArtsKC, and perhaps one of the most important. In 2007, ArtsKC started the ArtsKC Fund, a united arts fund. The ArtsKC Fund support arts organizations and artists through a competitive grants system.
