Indiana Arts Homecoming

Indiana Arts Homecoming, October 18-19, 2018, Fort WaynePresented by the Indiana Arts Commission in concert with a statewide steering committee, 2018 marks the second year of this collaborative annual convening of Indiana’s statewide arts community: artists, arts organizations, arts educators and arts supporters which will be held October 18 & 19 at the Arts Campus in Fort Wayne. Centralized around a theme, participants learn field-driven best practices from across the state. This year’s Indiana Arts Homecoming will be combined with the 2018 Governor’s Arts Awards, which will be held at Sweetwater Sound, so it’s truly going to be an epic two days of arts in our state. You won’t want to miss it!

This Year’s Theme: Quality of Place for a Vibrant Indiana

We know the arts are a key ingredient to quality of place, but what does that mean?  What does it look like?  And, where – from artist to advocate to arts administrator to overall organization – do we start (or make the most impact?) We will explore arts’ expansive role in community development, its intersections with economic development, and its resonating effects for the state.
