FHRC Receives Art Grant

In January 2020, the Flint Hills Regional Council (FHRC) received a $20,000 grant from the Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission (KCAIC).  FHRC will work with arts organizations throughout the Central Flint Hills Region to create an interactive website that will map the location and type of arts assets.  We have identified over 80 arts/cultural organizations in the region.  Each one will have a web page with basic information about the organization and a link to their website. 

There will be photos and a description of the organization’s offerings.  The website can be used by locals and tourists alike to see events and places to visit in the region.  The website will also have a calendar function where programs, performances, and festivals will be listed.  Our hope is to bring economic development to the region through arts. Our hope is that this committee will become the beginning of a Flint Hills Arts District as well as well as be key in creating the vision of the website and selecting photographers and artists for the associated artwork.
