Guiding Cultural Arts
Lee's Summit has a rich tradition of supporting the arts. The Cultural Arts Plan was developed in 2007 to provide guidance as City leadership and the Lee's Summit Arts Council work to enhance cultural offerings for the community that leverage partnerships, create economic impact and strengthen the overall quality of life.
The Cultural Arts Plan established three primary focus areas:
Participation - Include more people, more often, in a wide range of arts, culture and heritage experiences.
- Creativity - Strengthen and promote ways in which citizens can be creative through interactive exploration as well as through educational and enrichment offerings.
- Placemaking - Provide formal and informal gathering spaces for the creation, presentation and enjoyment of cultural activities.
