Arts Bridge

Connecting our community

Starlight’s Arts Bridge program leverages the power of the arts for community building in Kansas City. Through innovative collaboration with arts organizations and community nonprofits, the programming developed through these partnerships creates opportunities for cultural celebration, learning, community dialogue, artistic exploration, and civic engagement.

By activating the historic facilities of Starlight Theatre as a community space, these partnerships produce a variety of engagements, including free events, performances, town halls, festivals, workshops, and symposiums.
