Kansas City Creative Class Competes For Cash



The local movie for tonight offers a big picture look at the Kansas City art scene and how it measures up to other towns.

Check the description . . .

"We know we shouldn't compare ourselves to others, but of course we do, right? The same goes for the economy of the arts. This final episode in our 4-part video series talks to city and civic visionaries about how they see the future of the Kansas Cit 'artconomy'."

Take a look:

With just a little bit more practice, patience at time, we should be on the same level of Austin some time around 2250.

Keep it up chaps!

Our art scene sucks because out artists have no talent. It’s a great way to avoid being a responsible adult but it doesn’t pay very well. Our art community is third rate.

The greatest con artists are working at City Hall. Their business is worth tens of millions and they use this artsy fartsy b.s. as part of their grift.

One of the oldest scams around and something that just keeps growing and growing, thanks to clueless and cowardly electeds.
If your business can't attract enough customers to enabled it to pay the bills, just go to the nearest government and get a tax break, subsidy, or outright handout.
Hey, it worked for Cordish and the P&L District.
Why not for these local arts groups and "artists"?
Not everyone is a trust fund baby!
And you can live in your parent's basement and have access to their credit cards only so long.
