Long Live the Lumberyard!
At the Lumberyard Arts Center, our mission is to enhance community wellbeing through creative experiences, and our vision is to be the home of multidisciplinary arts and innovation in Baldwin City, Kansas. We truly believe that art has the power to transform our community into a more just, equitable, and open place where everyone belongs.
The last four years has seen tremendous organizational and programming growth with the hire of a full time director, tripling of membership, launch of a live music program and the re-emergence of community theatre. Our success comes with the need to bolster human resources capacity and strengthen internal infrastructure. As such, the board of directors and staff set in motion this past fall a strategic planning process that resulted in a long term plan and vision.
Long Live the Lumberyard! Is our 2024-2028 vision to build the arts in Baldwin City through: 1) shoring up operating support; 2) the hire of additional staff by 2026; 3) programming development with USD 348 for a new career and technical pathway for students to engage in the arts and; 4) fundraising for building expansion that will serve as a creative catalyst for residents and visitors to be entertained, enriched and inspired by 2028.
