Leesa Jing, Grant Services & Education Partnerships Coordinator

Provenance: Evansville, IN

Current neighborhood: Broad Ripple

First Job: My first job in highschool was working retail at a mall. However, I'm thankful that my position at the Arts Council is my first professional job out of college. 

If I weren't an arts administrator, I would be: Working in higher education. I'm passionate about education in general and love the atmosphere at higher education institutions. When I was in college, I worked at my university's admissions office for three years. 

Inspiration: Really cheesy inspirational quotes, as well as friends and family.  

Reading: Motivational biographies

Listening to: Spotify's Pop Covers playlist

Zen Moment: Laying in a hammock enjoying a good book

Current Project: The biggest project I'm currently working on is learning more about a new website for our online grants system. I will be transferring the data and applications from the old site to the newer site that will be easier and more convenient for organizations and artists to use. 

Love about the Indy arts scene: I love the depth of the Indy art scene. There are so many different things to do and see when it comes to the arts; there is definitely something for everyone! I also love that the arts scene is contiuously growing and changing with the city. 

When you are not out crusading for the arts, where can we find you? Walking, running, or biking the Monon Trail
