At it’s heart, MET is committed to the art of story. We claim the great stories of our heritage as the birthright for all people. We work to encourage the creation of new stories and new artists whose voices speak to the rich totality of our community and whose perspectives deepen our understanding of each other and of our selves. We believe that exploration of personal creativity and opportunity for engagement in life long learning is critical to the health and happiness of people and our world.

Committed to extending access to the artistic Canon, inspiring Creativity, empowering Individuals and building Community, MET is based in Midtown Kansas City.
