In late 2018, The City of Lawrence received a $5,851,969 grant as part of Lilly Endowment Inc.’s Strengthening Indianapolis Through Arts and Cultural Innovation initiative. With this opportunity, Arts for Lawrence bolstered its partnership with The City of Lawrence to realize its vision and proposed the Fort Harrison Cultural Campus concept. The Cultural Campus is the arts and cultural piece of a redeveloped Fort Harrison, the new, unique and vibrant downtown for the City of Lawrence.
Judy Byron, Executive Director, Arts For Lawrence, has led the team that is bringing the Fort Harrison Cultural Campus to life. Join us November 19th to learn more from her about the vision and planning behind the Cultural Campus, as well as what’s coming to the area and how she believes creating a vibrant art destination in a diverse neighborhood, will reinvigorate economic development throughout the City of Lawrence.
