The Arts Council of Indianapolis invests in artists and arts organizations to nurture and foster a thriving arts scene that helps build stronger neighborhoods and ultimately enhances the quality of life for all Indianapolis residents. In 2015, the Grants Committee of the Arts Council adopted the following Equity Statement: “We will make equitable access to arts funding for all arts organizations and artists in Indianapolis a guiding principle of Arts Council grant making. Such funding will unite arts organizations and artists with diverse populations of our community to nurture a thriving culture for the arts within the City of Indianapolis.” We invite all eligible applicants to apply for a grant opportunity. These grant programs fall into two categories: Grants for Individuals and Grants for Organizations.
