Visiting Artists Program

Bringing the arts to every corner of Kansas

Visiting Artists provides funding for eligible organizations to engage and deepen the impact of arts programming on local and underserved audiences through exposure to and interaction with professional visiting artists. Presenters may book artists in any discipline, not just in performing arts. Projects should strive to integrate an arts discipline into non-arts content areas; help interpret an exhibition, performance or presentation; and support community development goals and objectives.
