Columbus Area Arts Council announces the deadline for the 2013–2014 grant cycle for the Indiana Arts Commission’s Regional Initiative Grants.

Any organization applying for 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.

On Jan. 16, all grant application guidelines will be available for download from the Arts Council’s website (www.artsincolumbus.org). Anyone needing assistance with the application process should contact Region 9 Regional Services Director, Jeff Kuehl, at 812-376-2535 orjkuehl@artsincolumbus.org.

To aid arts organizations in the grant application process, a public information session will be scheduled in Dearborn County later this month.

These sessions are open to any non-profit organization, municipality, or school that is planning arts-related activities for the upcoming fiscal year.
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 non-profit 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.

 The Indiana Arts Commission established the Regional Partnership Initiative in 1995 to better provide arts services to the residents of Indiana.

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 organizations and artists in the region.

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 the Indiana Arts Commission, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
