Mid-America Arts Alliance
Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas
Mid-America Arts Alliance (M-AAA), the regional arts organization working in partnership with the state arts agencies of Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas, strengthens and supports artists, cultural organizations, and communities throughout their region and beyond.
Offering national traveling exhibition programs, innovative leadership development, and strategic grant making, Mid-America is especially committed to enriching the cultural life of historically underserved communities by providing high quality, meaningful, and accessible arts and culture programs and services. Each year M-AAA’s programs, on average, reach one million people. Mid-America believes in more art for more people.
The Mid-America headquarters, in Kansas City’s Crossroads Arts District, extends Mid-America’s programming by providing exhibition, performance, film screening and training space, as well as an outdoor concert venue.
