Jump Start Art | KC

Jump Start Art is a non-profit foundation organized to assist emerging and self-taught artists by providing community spaces for creative growth, accessible workshops in the arts, and by connecting these artists to community resources in theater, visual arts, literary art, spoken word, and poetry both locally and nationally. We are an organization made up of artists, poets, actors, dancers, musicians and lovers of art who have benefited from the generosity of others and choose to give back some of what we have been given. We do this to build up the community we live in, reduce violence, enrich our cultural lives and to fill in some of the void left by reduced funding of the arts in the public schools.
