The Arts Council of Indianapolis works with various partners to create programs that help build and strengthen our professional artist community. Artist Industry Nights brings together artists of all disciplines and experience levels to network, socialize, collaborate, and connect.
Thanks to a generous donor to our Artist Services program, the Artist Industry Nights events are free and open to all professional and aspiring artists in central Indiana. Literary, performing, and visual artists are all encouraged to attend and help us "cross-pollinate" the Indy artist community. You may just meet your next collaborative partner or your mentor!
For each event, the Arts Council will partner with a different organization or venue to bring together the most diverse and interesting group of artists for drinks, nibbles, and conversation. This is not a meeting so don't worry about coming in late and please, come as you are. All artists are welcome.
NEW THIS YEAR! Our Listen In series will bring together established, well known artists, arts administrators, curators, etc. for casual conversations. Listen in or join in....feel free to sit in on one of these conversations to hear about and learn from the panelists' own experiences.
