The Indiana Arts Commission (IAC) announced today that Hoosier artists in selected disciplines 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 application guidelines and the online grant application system are currently accessible on the IAC website and can be found at:www.in.gov/arts/individualartistprogram.htm.
Application for IAP grants will only be available through the online grant system, and artists are encouraged to read through the guidelines completely before starting the application process. The deadline for application is February 6, 2015.
Applicants must be 18 years of age, must be an Indiana resident for at least one year prior to the date of application, and plan to remain in the state for the full grant period. Artists may not be enrolled in a degree-granting program. All projects must be completed between July 1, 2015 and June 30, 2016.
Applications must be submitted through the Indiana Culture Grants Online at http://indianacgweb.org/.
