Connect2Culture (C2C), a 501c3 located in Joplin, MO, was founded in 2009 to “enhance community through culture.” Since 2009 it has worked with the City of Joplin to support development of the Joplin Center for Arts & Entertainment/ Amphitheater – an initiative created before the May 22, 2011 tornado – and now part of rebuilding efforts to support economic development, education, and improved quality of life in Joplin.
Since February of 2013, C2C has been offering support services to local arts organizations and resources to increase community involvement and audience development for the arts. By promoting these organizations and raising public awareness of art opportunities, C2C aims to strengthen and grow the Joplin arts community.
At present, C2C will be publicizing arts activity/organizations/groups in Joplin, MO. With time and growth, we hope to extend our services and support Joplin’s future success as a vibrant creative community.
