Agency Biennial Reports

Every other year the Indiana Arts Commission produces a report summarizing the activities of the previous two fiscal years.

Artists

Entrepreneurship
On-Ramp is an accelerator for Indiana creative entrepreneurs built for artists who are looking to rev up their business thinking, whether they are starting something new, looking to deepen their business understanding or at a professional crossroads. On-Ramp gives participants new connections, a plan, coaching, and access to special funds to make it happen.

COVID-19 and the Impact to Artists
In partnership with the Arts Council of Indianapolis and more than 25 partners across the state, the Indiana Arts Commission (IAC) surveyed over 1,400 creatives about the impact of COVID-19 on their finances, life, and artistic career. This survey serves to inform artist-serving organizations on what the state of the creative entrepreneur is and what kinds of resources they are seeking.

Capacity Building

Education 

The Partnering Arts, Communities, & Education (PACE) program was established by the Indiana Arts Commission (IAC) in 2014 for the purpose of establishing long-term, in-depth, and sustainable partnerships between elementary schools with high poverty/low performing populations and arts organizations to impact student growth and achievement through extended arts and literacy experiences. PACE arts experiences occur as part of the academic day, at frequent and regular intervals throughout the entire school year, and align with the school’s planned academic curriculum. Arts educators and teaching artists collaborated to plan and provide instruction in the arts and to conduct ongoing assessments of student learning in the arts. 

Economy

In conjunction with the Indiana Arts Commission, Arts United of Greater Fort Wayne, Inc. commissioned the Community Research Institute at Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne to conduct a review of the Creative Economy for the State of Indiana. 

Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access 

Nonprofits

This report on the Indiana Arts and Culture Nonprofits: Overview and Challenges is based on a major survey of Indiana nonprofits conducted by the Indiana Nonprofits Project in 2017. Two previous rounds of surveys were conducted in 2002 (Round I), and 2007 and 2010 (Round II). The current report is the second based on this most recent Round III survey of Indiana Nonprofits and is designed to provide a basic overview of Indiana arts and culture nonprofit organizations.
