The City of Kansas City wants your feedback on arts and cultural policy.

To garner feedback, the city will host a total of 25 public meetings between Jan. 28 and Jan. 31 entitled Envision Arts & Culture KC. Public Art Administrator Porter Arneill described the series of public meetings and outreach efforts as a “festival of ideas.”

“These meetings will be held morning, noon and night, and we hope our friends, neighbors and fellow citizens will take advantage of this opportunity to help build Kansas City’s legacy and future as a cultural center,” Arneill said.

This initiative marks the first comprehensive review of arts-related policy in Kansas City since 1997. The collected information will be the center point of an assessment and planning report, which the City Council will use to update the city’s arts and cultural policy.

Meetings that will be held in Historic Northeast are:
Jan. 29: Kansas City Museum, 3218 Gladstone Blvd., 8 a.m. to 9 a.m.
Jan. 31: North-East Public Library, 6000 Wilson Rd., 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
