AILF is 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to commissioning public art for Downtown.

InterUrban ArtHouse, with regional arts partners, is pleased to offer a series of grant workshops for artists and small arts organizations, throughout Winter and Spring 2015. The series aims to outline the arts grants available to individual artists and artist groups across the Kansas City Metropolitan Region, and further afield.
The goal of these workshops is to connect individual artists with funding opportunities, to increase the quality and success of future applications, and to support the development of future art projects that are both suitable for arts funding and benefit the community through artistic excellence and community engagement.
