Creating a Regional Cultural Plan
The Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday announced its "Big Five" - five ideas to move the region forward. The project launched in 2010, collecting nearly 200 suggestions. The list was narrowed down to 20 in July - and many of those ideas were related to arts and culture (including moving the UMKC Conservatory of Music and Dance downtown, which made the top 5).

In August, Brownlee invited members of the arts, education, business, and government sectors to discuss the issue at an arts summit.
