Advocacy for stimulating arts culture grows with community engagement. Although day-to-day operations take place at the the Studio, much of Kansas Free for Arts' programming occurs within the community in the form of various arts-based events. These outreach events are open to the public and often free or at low cost to attendees. Different types of outreach programs have included events such as; community concerts, professional demonstrations, workshops, pop-up studios and more via strategic community partnerships. Kansas Free for Arts collaborates with local like-minded organizations in order to more effectively serve our community.
Kansas Free for Arts hopes to positively affect the City of Emporia and surrounding areas by fostering a growing interest in the community's cultural economy, as well as engaging public participation in the arts through the creation of continual community outreach opportunities.
Kansas Free for Arts' community outreach programs are created and implemented as funding is acquired and program proposals are approved by the board of directors.
