Registration opens for the fourth annual Indiana Arts Homecoming Conference
The Indiana Arts Commission (IAC) announced today registration is open for the fourth annual Indiana Arts Homecoming taking place October 14 – 15, 2020 online.

The Indiana Arts Homecoming is a gathering of Indiana’s artists, arts providers, and creative communities who are doing work every day to create opportunities that are vibrant, engaging, and embedded in the lives of our citizens. Traditionally, the conference attracts more than 300 attendees from all communities throughout the state.

“Gatherings are the heartbeat of community, and the arts nurture communities that are engaged and meaningful,” said Rishard Allen, Manager of Grant Services & Education Partnerships for the Arts Council of Indianapolis and steering committee co-chair. “That’s why it’s so important for us to pivot Homecoming to still give everyone the opportunity to gather, even if it’s virtually.”
This year’s conference will be free to attend and features an impressive line up of:

  • 18 Breakout sessions
  • 6 Creative Intermissions
  • 2 Keynote addresses
  • 2 Peer Discussions

The full session schedule will be released closer to the event date.

The Indiana Arts Homecoming is hosted by the Indiana Arts Commission and supported by the Indiana General Assembly, National Endowment for the Arts, Arts Midwest, and Americans for the Arts.
