For Everyone in Indiana: Living Our Vision
The IAC has been working alongside the creative sector to deepen our advancement of inclusion, diversity, equity, and access (IDEA) since the adoption of the agency’s 2017 strategic plan. Some of the highlights of that work include embracing community engagement to deepen the role, relevancy, and value of arts and creativity in communities; IDEA resources, trainings, and workshops; and most importantly, adopting a Cultural Equity statement to guide our work going forward. This has taken shape in changes in our grant programs, as well as in upcoming opportunities.
We are now taking the critical next step of looking more deeply at our programs, services, and operations, starting with the Arts Organization Support program. The IAC has engaged the consulting team of Anne Jin Soo Preston, Levon Williams, Kai Fierle-Hedrick, and Benjamin Alfaro to guide us through this first phase, which we plan to have completed before the end of this calendar year.
We are excited to take the next step in this important work, and your input and guidance will be essential as we plan for our shared future. Learn more about this process and how to get involved.
