ArtsMidwest is one of six regional arts organizations in the United States, serving audiences, arts organizations and artists throughout the primary region of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.

Each year, the Indiana Arts Commission provides a grant to ArtsMidwest, which is then combined with money from the other states in the region. This money is granted out to presenting organizations from Indiana to tour both our own state and other Midwestern states. In FY2013, ArtsMidwest provided $105,150 in services in our state which includes dues and additional funds by ArtsMidwest. These services were provided through a variety of programs and services.
