Brighter Lights in Bigger Cities?

Episode 4

1 minute read

In Kansas City, we’re told the economic impact of the arts totals a quarter of a billion dollars. This video series, Artconomy, evaluates what that number means: Where does that figure come from, and what’s counted in it?

Sure, we’re told never to compare ourselves to others, but even cities do it. Follow us into the fourth — and final! — episode in this series as we see how Kansas City’s art economy compares to others, and hear from city and civic leaders as they look to future growth.
