How much does it cost to attend?

Because of the generous funding from the Indiana General Assembly and the National Endowment of the Arts we are able to offset costs of the conference and offer this experience to Hoosiers at an incredible price of $75/person. Registration for the conference will open late summer.

Who normally comes to this conference?

Everybody. And we know how ridiculous that sounds but it’s true. This conference is focused on bringing everyone to the table to help Indiana communities create places where people want to live, work, and play. Think artists, mayors, economic developers, arts organizations, teachers, city councilors, professors, etc.
