On this week’s episode of the Northeast Newscast, sponsored by the Kansas City Museum, we’re joined by Dr. Jacob Wagner, who teaches Urban Planning and Design at UMKC. He is the faculty founder of the UMKC Center for Neighborhoods – a research and outreach unit dedicated to building the capacity of neighborhood leaders and advocates in Western Missouri. In this episode Wagner discusses Kansas City’s status as a UNESCO City of Music and a member of UNESCO Creative Cities Network.  Kansas City received this designation in 2017 and remains the only UNESCO City of Music in the United States.
