One of only five Indiana communities to receive grant
(DILLSBORO, Ind.) -- Dillsboro is one of only five Indiana communities awarded money to improve the town through the arts.
The Indiana Arts Commission selected Dillsboro for the pilot program and will give the town a grant to implement creative community development projects.
Town leaders plan to use the grant to renovate an underutilized building to become the multipurpose Dillsboro Arts Creator Space.
The space will then be filled with a robust schedule of learning experiences and public performances in all arts disciplines, Dillsboro officials said.
At the end of the pilot period, the IAC and Indiana Communities Institute will assess community outcomes for a planned formal rollout of the program in 2024.
The other four communities selected were Bedford, Monticello, Valparaiso and Warsaw.
