Why We're Doing This Because we are the Fringe of the Fringe Festival KC !

In the crazy rush to the theaters to see all of the amazing performing art that the Fringe Festival offers, it's easy for the Visual Arts to get overlooked. While we may not have the actors and stages we certainly have plenty of action and even trucks! Trucks? Yup! Trucks! You may have heard of the Lost Horizons Night Market, where renegade artists in rented trucks create amazing experiences to share (http://www.wired.com/underwire/2010/05/lost-horizon-night-market/). Well, it's time to bring that energy to Kansas City. I can't think of a better way to do that than through this 11 day extravaganza! Your donation will support the foundation of the Night Market revolution in KC. Our artists are creating funky, art-without-boundaries workshops (imagine a figure drawing class run by burlesque models, a paper-mache costume creation workshop, or getting down and dirty with some clay and a throwing wheel, on the spot!) while offering a beautiful blend between traditional and non-traditional “Fringey” gallery spaces. In addition to all of the collected artists, we'll engage the public by giving them the tools to create a piece of work (perhaps for the first time), surrounded by the energy of other artists, participants and "Fringers". Then, we'll provide the means for them to display it for everyone to see (inside of one of our Community Trucks none-the-less. What a debut to share with friends! )

Your donation along with our creativity will help us rent the trucks, buy insurance (so crucial), purchase some supplies, tell everyone we know and then some and throw open the doors and supply our Fringe-goers with deliciously free interactive experiences!

There is an artistic, creative community out there just waiting to be engaged. You can help spread the word by donating and getting our project off the ground!
