Indiana: National Accessibility Award

The Indiana Arts Commission (IAC) recently announced the Artist Access grant category, which is designed to recognize artists with disabilities as active, producing members of the Indiana arts community. The Artist Access grant award, which is part of the Individual Artist Program (IAP), provides funding to artists with disabilities to make a positive impact on their career development. The IAC is able to provide this one-time funding opportunity because it has been named the recipient of the 2009 National Accessibility Award presented by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and NASAA. The award provided a $30,000 NEA competitive grant that IAC will use to support the Artist Access grant. To find out more, contact IAC Community Development Manager and Accessibility Coordinator Kristina Davis.
