The KC Cultural Outbound Fund, established in 2024 by Global Ties KC, aims to empower artists, educators, and community changemakers by providing them with opportunities to travel abroad. As Kansas City’s influence expands internationally, these individuals will act as cultural ambassadors, fostering connections between diverse cultures. The Dak’Art exchange, the fund’s inaugural program, will open new avenues for Kansas Citians to engage with the global community.

🎶 Join us for an enchanting evening of music and poetry! ✨ We’re thrilled to present Calvin Arsenia, the mesmerizing harpist, alongside Melissa Ferrer Civil, KC’s Poet Laureate.

Let’s gather in this beautiful space to immerse ourselves in the magic of artistry and expression.

This event is a fundraiser for @globaltieskc. The funds raised will support the first group of culture workers they're sending to Senegal in May through their #kcculturaloutboundfund. This group includes Calvin Arsenia, Melissa Ferrer Civil, and John Raux.
