Deadline near for artists to apply for career development grants

Hoosier artists in selected disciplines only have until Friday, February 6, 2015 to submit grant applications for the IAC's Individual Artist Program.

Eligible projects will only be considered in the areas of: dance, literature, music theatre, and folk arts related to the traditional disciplines listed here. Artists with disabilities are encouraged to apply for projects related to the eligible disciplines either through the discipline directly or through the access category.

Individual artists living and working in Indiana may apply for up to $2,000 from the IAP grant, which requires no matching funds. The grants are intended to assist artists with specific project-related costs that will help them further their career and provide some form of public benefit through the completed project.

The applications guidelines and the online grant application system are currently accessible on the IAC website and can be found here.

On December 2, 2014 an online webinar took place where artists around the state could visit satellite locations to attend the session and learn more about the application process.
