BUILD A PROSPEROUS FUTURE FOR TOPEKA

ArtsConnect is committed to improving Topeka’s quality of life and economic success through the arts. ArtsConnect fulfills this mission by painting murals, organizing the First Friday Artwalk and advocating for funding at the municipal level.

By becoming an ArtsConnect Community Partner, you will play a critical role in nurturing a growing arts movement in Topeka - through the First Friday Artwalk, public art, grants, and more.

The arts tell our story as a community – giving rise to voices that might otherwise go unheard and helping us all to find common ground from which to build strength and resilience.

The arts play a vital role in the social determinants of health – improving outcomes for those with chronic illness, childhood obesity, mental health[1] and improving overall community well-being.

The arts create positive change in Topeka by:

  • increasing cross-cultural understanding,

  • enhancing community engagement,

  • documenting history, and

  • finding creative solutions to social issues. [2]
