Indiana Arts Commission Offers Individual Artist Program Grants


Arts Commission encourages Indiana artists to apply for Individual Artist Program grants

The Indiana Arts Commission (IAC) announced today that Hoosier artists in selected disciplines have until February 3, 2017 to submit grant applications for the IAC’s Individual Artist Program (IAP).

Eligible projects will only be considered in the areas of: dance, literature, music, theatre, and folk arts related to these traditional disciplines. Artists with disabilities are also encouraged to apply for projects related to these eligible disciplines, either through the discipline directly or through the access category.

Individual artists living and working in Indiana may apply for up to $2,000 from the IAP grant, which requires no matching funds. The grants are intended to assist artists with specific project-related costs that will help them further their career and provide some form of public benefit through the completed project.

The application guidelines and link to the online grant application system are currently available on the IAC website at

An informational webinar for potential applicants will be held December 5, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. (EST). Check the IAC website for more details.

Application for IAP grants will only be available through the online grant system, and artists are encouraged to read through the guidelines completely before starting the application process. The deadline for application is 4:30 p.m. (EST) February 3, 2017.

Applicants must be 18 years of age, must be an Indiana resident for at least one year prior to the date of application, and plan to remain in the state for the full grant period. Artists may not be enrolled in a degree-granting program. All projects must be completed between July 1, 2017 and June 30, 2018.
