Individual Artist Program Application Now Open
The Indiana Arts Commission recently announced that it is currently accepting online applications for Individual Artist Program grants.
Hoosier artists in selected disciplines may begin the online application process now through February 2, 2012.
Application guidelines and the online grant application system are currently accessible on the IAC website at http://www.in.gov/arts/individualartistprogram.htm.
Artists should be aware that the application for IAP grants will only be available through the online grant application system, and artists are encouraged to read through the guidelines before beginning the application process.
Eligible projects will only be considered in the areas of crafts, design art, media art, photography, visual arts, and folk arts related to these traditional disciplines.
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 careers, and provide public benefit through the completed project.
"Projects developed through these grants not only help artists further their careers, but also provide vehicles for their talent to be shared in their communities through exhibitions, demonstrations, and other instructional opportunities," said IAC Executive Director Lewis C. Ricci.
Applicants must be 18 years of age, must be an Indiana resident for at least one year prior to the application, and plan to remain in the state for the full grant period. Eligible artists may not be enrolled in a degree-granting program. All projects must be completed between July 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013.
Applicants are encouraged to carefully read the grant guidelines. If there are additional questions, please contact Susan Britsch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications must be submitted through the Indiana Cultural Grants Online (http://indiana.cgweb.org/) no later than February 2, 2012.
