ArtsWORK Indiana Retirement - February 1, 2018

ArtsWork Indiana logoAfter a 10-year run, the ArtsWORK Indiana website ended its internet presence on February 1, 2018. There were no longer funds available to maintain it. The website had served as a free, comprehensive source of information about Indiana artists with disabilities and had posted resources to help arts workers of all disciplines with their career development. For many years, Featured Artists were profiled on the site, mostly Hoosiers with disabilities.

The website was administered and updated by the Indiana Institute on Disability and Community (IIDC) at Indiana University from its inception. First launched in 2008, the development of the site was partially supported by a federal grant from the National Arts and Disability Center. In 2009, the National Arts Accessibility Leadership Award was given to the Indiana Arts Commission in recognition of the website and ArtsWORK's other achievements. The site was renovated in 2011 with funds from the Indiana Arts Commission, an ArtsWORK partner organization along with the IIDC and Art Mix (then VSA Arts of Indiana).

The ArtsWORK Update newsletter and ArtsWORK Indiana Facebook page have also been discontinued. Individuals with online directory listings as well as newsletter subscribers received email notification well in advance of the site's removal.
