Primary Arts Partners
Primary Arts Partners represent the Metro’s arts-and-culture community and are our “boots on the ground” arts contingent. Our Partners are nonprofit arts and culture organizations, individual artists, other nonprofits using art to further their missions, and arts-related businesses – all of them contributing to creative place-making in Cass and Clay Counties.
Our Partners are the types of entities and individuals who contribute to a more vibrant, more active society. We turn to our Partners to help sustain and nurture a community environment where creativity thrives and enhances the lives of our citizens.
The benefits of being a Primary Arts Partner with The Arts Partnership include:
