Wire KC Weekender
Disproving the myth that "there's nothing to do in Kansas City" one week at a time. Forward to colleagues, friends, & visitors and see you around town!
Learn what it takes to become a Centurion! Meet members of the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce's Centurions Leadership Program at one of our information sessions. 

Day-long task forces, service projects, and conversations with community and business leaders give Centurions an in-depth understanding of important community issues.

Centurions provide much-needed service to dozens of organizations throughout Greater Kansas City.

Throughout the program, Centurions received unique leadership development opportunities, learn about service on nonprofit and community boards, and discuss civic engagement and business success with community leaders. Upon completion of the program Centurions possess both the skills and avenues of opportunity necessary to assume leadership roles that will help move Greater Kansas City into the future.

Welp, it's been quite the year. On Saturday, October 20, join us at 18th St Union to celebrate one year of UN/TUCK existing on this Earth. It has been our mission to elevate marginalized voices through music, and though we have accomplished a great deal in collaboration with so many amazing artists, we are only just beginning to build this platform in Kansas City and beyond. As the music scene transforms and evolves, we feel it is vital to deliberately make space for parties that celebrate inclusivity and accessibility. We're excited to work with 18th Street Union to bring you a night of diverse vibes, artistry, and BPMs.

This workshop experience will span their installations, a dedicated writing session, and a walk in the Crossroads District, focused on the themes of memory and our sense of "the real."

Kansas City two-stepping’s roots took hold in the mid-1950s as the flamboyant big band and swing eras of jazz that once dominated the nightclubs of New York, Chicago and KC began to wane in favor of the new, slower sound of R&B.

@ The Juke House
East of Troost Avenue in Kansas City, grocery stores are more likely to emphasize sugary, fatty foods near the entrance. Farther west, however, stores beckon with fresh produce and fish. Can that change?
