Six Communities to Receive IAC Cultural Planning Consultancies

Six Indiana communities have been approved for the second iteration of the Indiana Arts Commission's Vibrant Communities cultural planning consultancy project.

The six communities, Decatur, Evansville, Lawrence, Madison, Terre Haute, and Westfield were selected from 34 that were eligible to apply for the consultancy opportunities after taking part in of the IAC's Vibrant Communities colloquia conducted in either fall of 2011 or this past June.

Each of the consultancies approved this fall will be tailored to the unique cultural needs of the eligible communities. Consultancies are expected to begin in January and continue through June 2014.
