INRC has launched a Creative Placemaking program, through the Lilly Endowment’s Strengthening Indianapolis through Arts and Cultural Innovation grant, to work with neighborhoods to establish a sense of place and increase vitality in Indianapolis neighborhoods. 

We’ve partnered with the Harrison Center, a community-based, nonprofit arts organization that seeks to be a catalyst for renewal in Indianapolis. This collaboration will connect residents to each other and their community, while working collaboratively to address community challenges, using arts and culture strategies to bridge neighbors and neighborhoods.

This program is available to all neighborhood groups across Indianapolis. The application is available here.

The deadline for the 2nd round of applications is Friday, April 16, 2021. Neighborhoods that are selected will be notified by Friday, April 23, 2021.

If you have any questions, or need additional information, please contact Ariana Beedie, INRC’s Creative Placemaking Program Coordinator at or 317-920-0330 x309.
