The Fishers Arts & Culture Commission (FACC) announced today the grantees for its 2023 Fishers Arts & Culture Grant program, with nine local organizations awarded $50,750 in funding. The grant is focused on local nonprofits and organizations that uplift the arts community within Fishers.
The FACC grant program was launched in 2021. For the 2023 grant cycle, the Commission raised the grant cap from $5,000 to $7,500. Funding for the grant program is allocated from the City of Fishers’ annual budget.
“This is our third year of providing grant funds to the Fishers community, and it is rewarding to see our community come together to support these projects” said Katie Haigh, chair of the Fishers Arts & Culture Commission. “From mental health awareness with the traveling Forgiving Sea Project to dance battles hosted by 31Svn Dance Academy, 2023 will be a year packed full of meaningful cultural experiences around Fishers.”
Since its launch in 2021, more than $142,000 in grants have been awarded to 37 local organizations, funding public art installations, community events, and cultural celebrations throughout Fishers.
“The FACC grants have allowed Fishers Arts Council to support the musical arts alongside the visual arts,” said grant recipient Les Reinhardt, executive director of Fishers Arts Council. “These grants have connected us with more musicians and have helped us promote artists beyond our own means.”
