ArtsEverywhere Initiative

Supporting Our Community's Remarkable Artistic Talent

Dancers with Southold Dance Theater

ArtsEverywhere is a $6-million initiative that the Community Foundation launched in the fall of 2004 to help support local arts organizations and the artists they present. Our community is brimming with talent—talent that drives economic growth, draws people together in festive spaces, and expresses the identity of our community through its creativity, diversity, and cultural variety. At the Community Foundation, we believe that when we invest in the talent of our local artists and arts organizations—our dancers, our artists, our actors, our musicians—we invest in our future.

We support local arts organizations through our competitive ArtsEverywhere grants; regular convening and educational opportunities for local arts organizations, and our annual Community Foundation Performing Arts Series at the Chris Wilson Pavilion at Potawatomi Park. Also, we're the Regional Partner for the Indiana Arts Commission, serving Elkhart, Fulton, Kosciusko, Marshall, Starke, and St. Joseph counties.
