Arts Council of Johnson County Needs Your Help to Get Budget Proposal Passed By Johnson County Commissioners
Johnson County Residents,

Your help is needed to encourage the Johnson County Board of Commissioners to approve the Arts Council of Johnson County's budget request for FY2021. The funding from JOCO supports ACJC's overall budget, which they match dollar for dollar with private and in-kind support.

From Arts Council of Johnson County...
"Through our programs and services ACJC empowers participation in the arts, convenes the community, and advocates for the arts; - whether through  Shooting Stars , the  veterans arts program , sharing  advocacy resources  or by connecting our creative sector to  COVID-19 resources .

Much of the Arts Council’s work is supported by a financial contribution from Johnson County government; a contribution that comprises half of our operating budget and enables us to leverage additional private funding."

On July 21st , ACJC is presenting their formal request for support to the County at 1:00 pm, 3rd floor of the County Administration Building, 111 S. Cherry St., Olathe. PLEASE show your support for the arts and the Arts Council by attending the meeting or by letting your Johnson County Commissioner know that you value the arts in your community and support the proposed budget from ACJC.

ArtsKC has included all of the information you need to find who your commissioner is and how you can contact them below. With the County Commission meeting next Tuesday, time is critical. Please reach out as soon as you are able to make your voice heard.
