Friday, January 17, 2020, from 2pm-5pm at Kansas City Black Archives of Mid-Missouri
Because so many arts organizations rely on government funding to keep their doors open, it’s necessary for artists and organizational leaders to engage with elected officials on a regular basis. ArtsKC is proud to partner with Missouri Citizens for the Arts to produce a program to help facilitate this conversation.
- Workshop | 2:00 – 3:30PM
- Reception | 3:30 – 5:00PM
Tickets are free, but registration is required for headcount.
Event Registration Includes:
- A two-part workshop: the importance of lobbying and how to educate your federal, state, and local elected officials. The workshop will be facilitated by Kyna Iman and a local city staffer TBD.
- A “Beginning of the Legislative Session” reception with state senators and representatives and other local elected officials. This will provide the opportunity to network and build a relationship with these leaders. TBA performances from local and regional musicians.
- A discount code for your ticket to Jefferson City on the ArtsKC bus for Citizens’ Day at the Legislature on Wednesday, February 5.
