What is IndianaArts.org?    This website is Indiana’s only statewide arts information online resource.  Its centralized portal and online community contains detailed registries of artists, organizations, and businesses.  The site’s registered members can publish online portfolios, event listings with images, classified ads, and subscribe to opt-in email communications.

This is the only website officially used by the Indiana Arts Commission (IAC) for grants processing and demographic reporting, and it offers a wide range of member services free-of-charge to artists, arts organizations and qualifying business across the state.  During the last 7 years, this arts portal has evolved into a popular online destination and has a growing member base of more than 3,400 registered users, with an average of 25,000 web page views per month from members and the general public.

The site is owned and operated by Arts Place, Inc., a regional not-for-profit arts council located in East Central Indiana.  The program is operating as a collaborative effort, involving over a dozen organizations and agencies across Indiana.  Beginning in 1998, Arts Place launched the original centralized online arts database, gradually adding enhancements in collaboration with the Indiana Arts Commission, other Regional Arts Partners (RAP), and Traditional Arts Indiana.  To learn more about Arts Place, see page 4, or visit www.ArtsLand.org .

Why Become a Corporate Sponsor?

Increase Trust In Your Brand
According to a 2005 study on corporate sponsorship by Performance Research ( http://www.performanceresearch.com/ ), over 1/2 of those with an interest in the Arts say they would "Almost always" or "Frequently" buy a product from an Arts or Cultural events sponsor over a business that does not. In contrast, only about 1/3 of NFL fans, 1/3 of America's Cup fans and less than 1/5 of the ‘96 Olympic Games audience chose products based on their sponsorships. Almost 1/2 of Americans with an interest in Art and Culture indicated that they hold a "Higher" trust in companies that sponsor arts programs compared to those who do not, while only 16% of Olympic Games enthusiasts claim a "Higher" trust in their sponsors.

Reach the Right Audience
According to the nationwide study, art and culture consumers sketch themselves as Family Oriented, Active, Mature, Fun loving, Traditional, and Socially liberal. They can best be described as married, middle income ($30-$60K), often baby boomers, with a penchant for traveling. These consumers with an interest in the Arts are brand loyal purchasers who appreciate corporate involvement.

Sponsorship makes sense for your business and the community
By participating in our low-cost sponsorship program, you place your service or product before an audience of educated decision-makers and influential buyers. Most importantly, our program enables your business to make a new and lasting impression on your target audience - to package your product or service in a new light - supportive of the growing trend towards long-term, mutually-beneficial partnerships in the arts and in the community. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to join other business leaders who share a commitment to strengthen our communities by supporting arts, internet technology, and cultural programs across the state.

About Arts Place, Inc. the organization behind IndianaArts.org
Founded in 1967, Arts Place is a regional arts council that provides a unique offering of programs and services in Indiana and Ohio.  While the programs of Arts Place have changed over the past four decades, its mission has remained constant:  to nurture the creative spirit through the arts in every community it serves.  Arts Place is dedicated to the notion that every community deserves significant arts opportunities for people of all ages and abilities

As a regional arts council, Arts Place plays a unique role by serving artists, cultural organizations, and the general public.  The development of www.artsland.org, www.indianaarts.org and www.ohioarts.org has put Arts Place at the forefront of arts information technology.  As the Indiana Arts Commission’s Regional Arts Partner for East Central Indiana, Arts Place provides grants, information, technical assistance, and leadership for the region’s arts community.

Arts Place operates arts centers in Portland, Indiana and St. Marys, Ohio.  These facilities present performances and exhibits, as well as providing instructional activities in the literary, performing, visual arts.  Outreach programs, such as Arts in the Parks and Artists in Residence provide many smaller communities with first-hand arts experiences that are typically available only in more urban settings.     

For more information about Arts Place, contact Eric Rogers, Executive Director, erogers@jayco.net (260) 726-4809; Arts Place, Inc., P.O. Box 804, Portland, IN 47371.  Please visit us at www.artsland.org
