INDIANAPOLIS, IN — The Arts Council of Indianapolis is offering $5,000 to underwrite school bus transportation in 2019. Funds are available through January 13, or until all the funds are all distributed. All central Indiana schools are eligible, public, private, and religious and field trips support access to six Indianapolis-based organizations, The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, Eiteljorg Museum of American Indian and Western Art, Indiana Repertory Theatre, Indiana State Museum, Indianapolis Symhony Orchestra and Newfields. This is not a competitive award. All funds will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
The new school bus grants coincide with the launch of a new online directory, IndyArtsEd.org designed to provide teachers with a one-stop destination for all their field-trip planning. There is no fee to use the online directory, and it is available to everyone. Funding for the school bus fund comes from contributions to the Arts Council’s Education Fund since 2015. For more information on the directory, please contact Education Partnerships Coordinator, Rishard Allen at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 317-631-3301.
