Dear Friends of Northeast Arts KC,


Summer will be upon us soon. We are thrilled to be able to present a Summer Dusk FREE Concert Series and Chalk Your Walk.  

As we all know, arts organizations and artists have been very hard hit due to the covid-19 related closures and cancellations of the last year. We would ask that, if you have the ability, you please consider making a tax-deductible donation to Northeast Arts KC at this time. Though our events are free to the public, the musicians who perform for you at those events do get paid, and we will be short on funding this season.  Here’s a link:  or you can Venmo us @NEartsKC

Our organization is staying up to date on all the latest coronavirus news. We will be following all state, county, and city mandates regarding gatherings, and will be making decisions based on those guidelines. It goes without saying that the health and safety of our audience – our friends and neighbors – will always be our top priority. 

We look forward to seeing you at our summer events. Until then,  stay safe, and healthy; and stay home as much as you can!
