For 10 years KC Fringe has offered diverse, exciting and unique arts experiences, welcoming thousands of patrons and artists at venues throughout Kansas City. It has routinely served as a successful introduction to the Kansas City arts scene for arts audiences from around the nation, helping to advance the arts throughout the Midwest.
KC Fringe’s successful track record brought new opportunities and they knew it was time to explore what was possible. How could they better serve this community through the arts? Through this, KC Creates was born.
The new production company, KC Creates, offers an opportunity for our arts community to represent itself on a national and international scale. Out of a dynamic arts community comes KC Creates.
KC Creates will nurture and orchestrate several programs throughout the year. The newest addition is Waterfire, October 3 7-10pm on Brush Creek on the Country Club Plaza.
“Water and fire, two of the primal elements of life, expressed more than 50 bonfires blazing on Brush Creek in the heart of the city; music filling the night air and echoing along river walkways; and thousands of people sharing the experience—WaterFire is considered one of the most moving and dramatic expressions of public art in the U.S.”
