"The role of art for me is the visualization of attitude,
of the human attitude towards life, towards the world."
We can't be the only people, especially in the art and tourism industries, who have been hearing the Friends sitcom battle cry of Ross vs. the Couch. PIVOT! We're trying! OMG!
We are very confident that the Art School bus will roll again, and that we will have many future in-person art adventures to experience, share and plan for others. Until then, we're PIVOTING to focus on digital capabilities, virtual opportunities and the exciting ways we can help our communities from home.
K.Co specializes in experiential programs, tours and other creative strategies and ideas that connect people with local art.
These "Art Adventures" provide a sense of place, a memorable experience, and invest time and resources into local creative communities. Plus, they're really fun!
Give your audience the personalized experiences they want paired with your trusted brand perspective and promise, and ours. Our programs position you as the expert, and your audiences have peace of mind knowing that their activities are professionally vetted, meticulously planned, and have real-time, local service support that isn't found in an app or third-party technology vendor.
Our services range from custom itineraries facilitated online to immersive, highly-customized tours for events and conferences, along with arts engagement and program consulting. We work on retainer, by project, or can craft a multi-month campaign that positions your brand as an arts leader and community partner.
We are perfect partners to hotels, tourism bureaus, civic organizations, and corporate service providers who handle corporate and C-level relocations and entertainment for traveling executives or other VIPs.
K.Co Arts occasionally hosts and produces our own creative tours and other interesting, art-centered experiences in Dallas and elsewhere, sometimes partnering with local mission-aligned businesses. If you feel we would be right for a creative or strategic partnership, please get in touch.

Our team is small, which gives us the ability to dive deep and fully customize our engagements, and also means that we move quickly. Additionally, when you work with K.Co, you work directly with Stephanie, meaning quicker decisions with less red tape, and direct access to all the information and resources in K.Co's network and expertise. Finally, because we are small, we take on limited client engagements, meaning more availability and our full attention on your project.
Our relationships with trusted industry experts and other vendors allows us to scale and adapt to accommodate engagements of many sizes.
