The Music on Main program aims to connect our creative communities to resources that celebrate and “amplify” their place within Kansas music.

Hutch Rec connects with our communities through the Heartland Arts & Culture Collective to take a closer look at the arts and humanities in our region – from recreational creative experiences for the youth and public, all the way to industry development that identifies and advocates for the economic and cultural impact of the arts, entertainment, and tourism.
