Artist Meet-ups

Artist Industry Nights 600 px


The Arts Council of Indianapolis works with various partners to create programs that help build and strengthen our professional artist community. Artist Industry Nights brings together artists of all disciplines and experience levels to network, socialize, collaborate, and connect.

Thanks to a generous donor to our Artist Services program, the Artist Industry Nights events are free and open to all professional and aspiring artists in central Indiana. Literary, performing, and visual artists are all encouraged to attend and help us "cross-pollinate" the Indy artist community. You may just meet your next collaborative partner or your mentor!

For each event, the Arts Council will partner with a different organization or venue to bring together the most diverse and interesting group of artists for drinks, nibbles, and conversation. This is not a meeting so don't worry about coming in late and please, come as you are. All artists are welcome.

Thanks to everyone who attended this year's Artist Industry Nights!  These events will resume Spring 2019.
