About the Cultural Advancement Support
Through the Cultural Advancement Support Program, the Arts Council created a cultural advancement investment portfolio to build the capacity and create sustainable operations of mid-sized arts and cultural institutions through unrestricted operating support. Organizations supported through this category represent arts and cultural entities of high artistic merit, regularly employing artists, and creating new and relevant work for the benefit of Indianapolis’ residents and visitors alike.
