“Gatherings are the heartbeat of community, and the arts nurture communities that are engaged and meaningful,” said Rishard Allen, Manager of Grant Services & Education Partnerships for the Arts Council of Indianapolis and steering committee co-chair. “That’s why it’s so important for us to pivot Homecoming to still give everyone the opportunity to gather, even if it’s virtually.”

Oh, and the arts are good for business, too. Did you know that the Arts & Culture sector in the United States represents $764 billion every year? Plus, U.S. exports generate a $24.1 billion arts trade SURPLUS. (Source: Americans for the Arts)
