The deadline for Indiana Arts Commission grants is approaching and the IAC wants to make sure that applicants remember that there's been an important change to the process.
For the past several years, the Arts Council of Indianapolis has acted as the Indiana Arts Commission's regional partner (Region 7). But that changed this spring and now grant applications should go directly to the state Arts Commission. Grant guidelines can be obtained and applications submitted online via the IAC website: http://www.in.gov/arts/regionalinitiativegrant.htm.
But here's the kicker: the deadline is June 25.
The geographic spread of Region 7 organizations sounds like a tornado watch list: Boone, Hamilton, Hancock, Johnson, Marion and Shelby Counties. Organizations seeking information and assistance prior to the June 25 deadline should contact Anne Valentine at the Arts Council on Indianapolis at 317-631-3301, ext. 235 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
