Description

Each year, ArtsKC partners with Missouri Citizens for the Arts to connect arts advocates with their elected representatives at the Missouri State Capitol.

Your Citizens' Day experience will include:

  • A chartered bus ride to and from Jefferson City, departing from and returning to ArtsKC's convenient location in the Crossroads Arts District.

  • Talking points and information about the impact of state arts funding in your specific congressional district. Use this information to make the most of your time with your legislators!

  • Pre-scheduled appointments with Kansas City-area legislators, and team captains for each visit so you are prepared and confident in your conversations.

  • Pizza lunch with Kansas City-area legislators hosts TBD.

  • The annual Missouri Arts Council Awards Ceremony.
