Wichita Creatives works to strengthen our community by connecting independent artists, musicians, performers, and others in the creative industries with local, regional, and national businesses for arts-related work, networking, and educational opportunities.
WICHITA CREATIVES EMERGENCY RELIEF FUND
Phase 1: (closed November 20, 2020) The Wichita Creatives Fund Emergency Relief Grant was created in April 2020 for individuals working in the art and creative sector who have been impacted by the current public health crisis. This fund provided $500 rapid response, one-time, needs-based grants to help offset the lost wages affecting so many in our creative community.
The fund was made possible through donations from partner organizations the Wichita Community Foundation and Knight Foundation, The Arts Council, Fidelity Bank, KMUW and many individual arts supporters in our community.
