The Kansas City Design Center is excited to welcome Terrance Clark as our new Executive Director. As Executive Director, Clark will draw on his extensive experience in the non-profit sector to provide leadership, creative and strategic planning, development, and implementation for the KCDC. “I look forward to every day being filled with community engagement and educational outreach to benefit the work and enhance the inherent value of creative individuals and organizations; and, meaningful collaborations with entrepreneurial innovators, artists, designers, new ventures, small creative businesses, and advancing local and regional partnerships,” Clark said.

Clark has served as Co-Founder and Executive Director of the non-profit design organization Thrive, located in the Arkansas/Mississippi Delta. Thrive initiates public-private partnerships for entrepreneurial training and art/design programming. His efforts and leadership have led to invitations to apply partner programs in two public high school districts for STEAM training, mentoring recent art college graduates and Americorps recruits; innovative design initiatives with regional private investors; and, attracting private philanthropy to the work addressing community development.

Please join us in welcoming Terrance to the KCDC leadership team, we are excited for this next phase in KCDC’s growth as a catalyst for positive change in the Kansas City region.
