An ArtsWORK Indiana Creative Conections workshop

Who We Are and What We Do

For over 10 years, ArtsWORK Indiana has been dedicated to making creative careers more accessible to adults and young people challenged by disability. We are an informal, statewide network of artists, educators, vocational professionals, and cultural organizations that provides:

  • career-related information and networking
  • peer-to-peer encouragement
  • increased awareness of Hoosier artists with disabilities and their contributions

Our participants range from just-emerging artists to experienced professionals, in varied art fields, with and without disabilities. ArtsWORK works closely with our statewide partner organizations and encourages leadership by people with disabilities.

ArtsWORK Indiana wants to make our state a place where people with disabilities have an opportunity to use their creative talents and get paid for it!

Activities and Awards

  • A monthly e-newsletter contains highlights of happenings and newly added online resources. In between, you’ll find fresh updates and a venue for conversations on our Facebook page.
  • ArtsWORK Indiana has received funding from the National Arts and Disability Center and the National Endowment for the Arts in the category of Statewide Forums on Careers in the Arts for People with Disabilities and Follow-Up Projects. Via the Indiana Arts Commission (IAC), the initial grant partially supported our well-attended Forum on Careers in the Arts in 2004, with three follow-up grants to develop this website, sponsor career skills workshops in 6 Indiana cities and, in 2010, establish 2 regional satellite groups.
  • The National Assembly of State Arts Agencies presented the 2009 National Access Leadership Award to the IAC in recognition of ArtsWORK Indiana’s accomplishments. Through a competitive individual grant process, the IAC re-distributed the cash award accompanying this honor to 14 Indiana artists with disabilities.
