As the nation’s first Regional Arts Organization, Mid-America Arts Alliance represents the states of Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas, with a focus on strengthening communities and improving lives through extraordinary cultural experiences. M-AAA strengthens and supports artists, cultural organizations, and communities through the region and beyond. We exist to activate, empower, and amplify community through the arts. We believe in the freedom of cultural and creative expression is fundamental to humanity, and that the arts and humanities encourage empathy and further the understanding of diverse cultures and traditions. We believe in more art for more people.
