Arts for Learning Receives Strengthening Indianapolis Through Arts and Cultural Innovation Grant from Lilly Endowment

 

Indianapolis – December 5, 2018… Arts for Learning has been announced as the recipient of a $327,000 grant from Lilly Endowment for programming in six Indianapolis schools, including Butler University Laboratory at William Bell 60, Center for Inquiry School 84, Edison School of the Arts School 47, and West Newtown Elementary.

 

The grant will fund “Third Space,” a program designed to temporarily disrupt the school environment through the installation of museum-quality works of art created by established local artists. Each school will host an artwork for one week that will serve as the basis of the curriculum. An Arts for Learning teaching artist will lead workshops at the school that reinforce the lessons gleaned from the artwork. Each “Third Space” project culminates in open house event for families and the larger neighborhood community to share in the transformative learning experience.

 

The “Third Space” program was selected by Lilly Endowment for funding because it met the initiative’s criteria of increasing access to arts and making arts and culture a larger part of the lives of individuals and families. For more information about the grant and the application process, go to https://lillyendowment.org/our-work/community-development/indianapolis/arts-culture-grants-list/.

 

Since 1961, Arts for Learning has been empowering children to achieve their creative and intellectual potential through arts-integrated education. Arts for Learning employs more than 100 teaching artists who provide performances, workshops, and residencies to schools, libraries, parks and community organizations to reach nearly 50,000 Indiana children every year.
