Supporting the designation of the Arts Council of Metropolitan Kansas City as the Local Arts Agency for the City of Kansas City, Missouri to seek funding from the National Endowment for the Arts and directing the City Clerk to forward this resolution to the Kansas City, Missouri Municipal Arts Commission upon adoption by the City Council.

 

WHEREAS, the National Endowment for the Arts recognizes the important role played by Local Arts Agencies in communities throughout the United States, for their coordination of cultural leadership, for their collaborations with governmental departments of economic development, parks and recreation, libraries, and local education agencies/school districts, for their direct work with specific arts constituents, and for their work with a variety of other organizations such as convention and visitor bureaus, festival committees, chambers of commerce, and educational groups; and

 

WHEREAS, the National Endowment for the Arts requires that a private arts council be officially designated to operate on behalf of the City as its Local Arts Agency in order to apply for funds to be subgranted for service and programming activities on behalf of the Arts Councils constituents, and no such designation previously has been made on behalf of the City of Kansas City; and

 

WHEREAS, the mission of the Arts Council of Metropolitan Kansas City is to strengthen and enrich the community through the arts by developing partnerships, visibility, participation, support, information, and education; and

 

WHEREAS, the City of Kansas City Municipal Arts Commission acknowledges and welcomes the contributions of the Arts Council of Metropolitan Kansas City as a valued partner and worthy candidate for Local Arts Agency status; and

 

WHEREAS, the City Council recognizes the substantial contributions made by the arts to the quality of life and the economic and social development of the City, and the vital role played by the Arts Council of Metropolitan Kansas City in securing new resources for the ongoing growth and development of the entire arts community in the City; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

Section 1. That the City Council designates the Arts Council of Metropolitan Kansas City as the Local Arts Agency for the City of Kansas City and endorses its application to the National Endowment for the Arts for funds to be subgranted to its constituent arts organizations and individuals for arts and cultural services and programs that are expected to benefit the residents of the City and strengthen the community as a whole.
