Indy’s artists and nonprofit arts and culture workers are a driving force of the city’s economy, serving 8 million residents and visitors annually.

Since March 2020, they have continuously innovated – delivering art-making kits to kids, performing virtual concerts and shows, sewing protective masks and gowns for health-care workers, and turning Downtown’s boarded-up buildings into a community canvas to illustrate powerful messages of hope and healing. 

They needed our help in 2020, and they need it now, as the world begins to reopen. Nearly a quarter of artists surveyed said have closed their creative practice or are considering doing so, due to the challenges presented by COVID-19. Your donation to the Keep Indy Creating fund can help cover restart costs for artists struggling to rebuild their practice, or support mental health services for those suffering after a year of isolation and loneliness.
