Mayoral Candidate Forum

The Arts Council is hosting a Wichita Mayoral Candidate Forum on Thursday, February 12 at Century II, Mary Jane Teall Theater. Please join us:

Social: 5:15-6:00

Forum: 6:00-7:30

The arts enhance our quality of life, promote economic development and help build vibrant and connected communities. The arts are a vital part of our city’s future; this forum will focus on city government’s role in supporting the arts and implementing a comprehensive cultural plan. Questions will allow candidates to share their knowledge and level of support for arts and culture  in Wichita.

We have an exciting opportunity to make our voices heard through our votes – and the time is now! One of the primary colors in the Wichita flag is red; as a show of solidarity and unity we are asking those who support arts and culture in Wichita to wear red at this event. Our hope is this show of solidarity will make an impression on each candidate and increase their awareness of how important arts and culture are to a large proportion of voters.

This event is sponsored by The Arts Council, KWCH and KMUW. Also, please mark your calendars for the City Council Candidate Forum on March 19th.
