Friday meeting explains arts grants application process

— Any organization applying for grant funding in the Arts Project Support/Mini Grants and Arts Organization Support categories must submit an electronic application to the Indiana Arts Commission by March 1, reported Jeff Kuehl, Columbus Area Arts Council regional services director.

Arts Operating Support grants are specifically geared to Indiana arts and cultural organizations. Arts Project Support and Mini Grants are designed to support new and existing arts projects and activities produced or presented by an Indiana nonprofit organization. The objective is to provide general public access to quality arts and cultural activities, with special attention to underserved communities, and to provide general public access to educational opportunities where Indiana citizens of all ages can learn about and experience different art forms and participate in arts activities.

To aid organizations in the grant application process, there will be a public information session at noon Friday, Jan. 25, at the Woodland Hills Center, 403 Bielby Road, Lawrenceburg. This session is open to any nonprofit organization, municipality or school that is planning arts-related activities for the upcoming fiscal year.

All grant application guidelines are available for download from the Columbus Area Arts Council’s Web site (www.artsincolumbus.org). Anyone needing assistance with the application process should contact Kuehl at 812-376-2535 or jkuehl@artsincolumbus.org.

IAC established the Regional Partnership Initiative in 1995 to better provide arts services to Indiana residents. The Columbus Area Arts Council is the Regional Arts Partner for the southeastern Indiana region, which covers Bartholomew, Dearborn, Decatur, Franklin, Jackson, Jennings, Ohio, Ripley and Switzerland counties. In addition to providing funds, the regional partnership also provides technical assistance to area organizations and artists.

The Columbus Area Arts Council is a public, not-for-profit corporation supported by private donations, the city of Columbus, the state of Indiana through IAC and the National Endowment for the Arts.
