What happens when you train a group of artists, community members, and police officers to work together to prevent crime and improve public safety in a neighborhood? That’s what we’re finding out with Indy East Art Peace, a joint project of the Arts Council of Indianapolis and Near East Area Renewal (NEAR).
Indy East Art Peace is currently seeking artist and resident participants to engage with the project. Resident applicants must live in a Near Eastside neighborhood, and artist applicants must live in or work from a studio located on the Near Eastside.
