Columbus Area Arts Council is one of 11 Regional Partners charged with implementing a statewide initiative developed by the Indiana Arts Commission (IAC). The Arts Council serves as the Regional Arts Partner for Region 9, representing Bartholomew, Dearborn, Decatur, Franklin, Jackson, Jennings, Ohio, Ripley and Switzerland counties.
As a Regional Arts Partner, the Arts Council distributes Indiana Arts Commission grants in a way that is responsive to the needs of each region, provides direct services to communities, and provides citizens a role in the allocation of state resources. Available grant programs include:
Annual Operating Support (AOS) Annual grant program for the artistic and administrative functions of eligible arts and cultural organizations that provide arts activities with special attention to under served communities.
Arts Project Support (APS) Funding for nonprofits that engage in new or existing arts and cultural projects. The objective is to provide public access to quality activities and to provide general public access to educational opportunities where Indiana citizens of all ages can learn about and experience different art forms and participate in arts activities.
For further information about Region 9, contact Tracy Heaton de Martinez, Region 9 Representative, at email@example.com.
Credit Funding Logos for Regional Arts Partner Grantees
If you receive IAC funding through one of our Regional Arts Partner organizations, (this includes any AOS I and AOS II grantees, and APS project specific materials) you are required to use the IAC logo and the logo for your Regional Arts Partner. Federal funding to the arts is very important to all arts providers, regardless the size of their grant. Therefore, it is strongly encouraged you also include the NEA logo.
As with the IAC and NEA logos, our Regional Arts Partner logos are available for download from the IAC website at: www.in.gov/arts/2385.htm. Grantees may position the logos as they choose to best fit their design needs, but all logos should be equally sized and placed in the same general proximity on the promotional materials.
If the layout of the promotional materials requires changing the size of these logos, make sure that:
- All logos are sized proportionally to the original dimensions (i.e. do not change the aspect ratio)
- Logos must not be resized to make text unreadable
- Make sure at least .167 inches of space around logos to avoid crowding
If design restrictions on promotional materials preclude you from using the NEA logo, written and / or verbal credit language must be included in marketing and promotional materials related to the funded project. This language should read: “This activity made possible, in part, with support from the Indiana Arts Commission, The Columbus Area Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.” You will be required to demonstrate how this language was incorporated into your promotional materials.
