Engage Kingsport is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that works in tandem with the Kingsport Office of Cultural Arts supplying volunteer and financial support and acting as an advisory ‘friends’ group.  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 Kingsport Public Art Committee by accepting donations for public art.
