Apply for Funding

Applications for the Keep Indy Creating Relief Fund are now closed.

Thanks to the generosity of our funders and individual donors, we were able to offer more than 900 emergency relief grants to artists and cultural workers during Phase I (March-May 2020) and an additional 300 in Phase II (Oct.-Dec. 2020). Nearly $1 million was raised to support artists who needed help with basic living expenses such as rent/mortgage payments, food, and health care.

The Arts Council is formulating a new survey to better understand the 2021 needs of the Indianapolis arts community. Based on our findings, we will move forward with new services and resources. Please check this site for updates, follow @artscouncilindy on social and sign up for the Artist Opportunities newsletter.
