Why Build a Downtown Arts Campus in Kansas City?

Take the downtown Kansas City you know now and add some 600 performing and visual arts students to it — all living, studying, playing, and creating in the heart of our burgeoning creative center. And they never grow up and move away! That’s the vision laid out by the Conservatory and its dean, Peter Witte, in their plan for a Downtown Campus for the Arts in KC.

I made this mini-doc-style video not only to promote a September panel discussion at the library but also because I think the Downtown Arts Campus is a really exciting idea. Good for the city’s cultural economy in a measurable, meaningful, and lasting way.
