Thursday October 3 was a proud moment for Indy Suzuki, as students performed for local government and leaders at the City Budget Hearing at the Phoenix Theatre.
As a new grant recipient from the Arts Council of Indianapolis, ISA was invited to perform at the Budget Hearing to help demonstrate the impact of Arts Funding on our city and youth.
The Parks and Recreation Committee voted unanimously to support the City’s 2020 arts allocation, including the 10% increase proposed by Mayor Hogsett for a total of $1.1M from the City’s budget. The next step is the full council vote on October 14.
Our Indy Suzuki community was proud to have been a part of this larger initiative with other Arts leaders to secure the first increase in City arts funding since 2009 in a landscape of significant budget challenges and competing priorities.
Thank you for being part of our community, and special thank you to the families, faculty, volunteers and board members who represent ISA and support the Arts in Indy.
