Engage Kingsport is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that works in tandem with Kingsport Cultural Arts supplying volunteer and financial support and acting as an advisory “friends” group. Engage Kingsport was established in 2011 by a group of area citizens just as the Carousel Project began to gain momentum. Since that time, Engage has also developed box office tools to help with area concerts, operated a gallery of local artists in Downtown Kingsport, and supports the Kingsport Public Art Committee by accepting donations for public art.
