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.

The deadline for the 2nd round of applications was Friday, April 16, 2021. 

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