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) that happened from August 2017 through July 2019. The Indy East Art Peace Toolkit is publicly available, here.
This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. To find out more about how National Endowment for the Arts grants impact individuals and communities, visit http://www.arts.gov
