St’art Up 317 is looking for artists, startups, and established businesses who could benefit from exposure and revenue provided by a short-term pop-up in the heart of downtown Indianapolis.

The long-term goal of the program is to eliminate empty storefronts, increase local and visitor consumer spending and ensure that the Downtown neighborhoods continue thriving.
Who Can Apply to be a Vendor?
St’art Up 317 welcomes applications from individuals, organizations or businesses who have an exhibit, a product, or a place-making initiative that can pop-up for 30 days in May during regular business hours.

Two, three, and five week residencies, September 2 – October 6, 2018
