Support the Fest

The Lawrence Arts Center’s Free State Festival is a celebration of film, music, art, and ideas in the heart of Lawrence’s Cultural District. Each year, it features a world class lineup of films, concerts, guest speakers, panel discussions and art installations. Last year’s festival attracted approximately 20,000 audience members. With our sponsors’ support, the Free State Festival highlights art and artists with the long-term goal of enhancing the socioeconomic wellbeing of the region and providing new opportunities to artists.  Join us as a sponsor in 2017 and enjoy these benefits:
