OPEN Indy is an advanced arts education program that invites nationally recognized visiting artists to Indianapolis to provide accessible, professional, and innovative training opportunities to performing artists in Indianapolis. Produced jointly by NoExit and IMAC, OPEN Indy has two main components: First as a platform for continued education and training for artists in Indianapolis, and second, an opportunity for our audience to witness training applied to public, professional performance.
This year, OPEN Indy is generously supported by the Arts Council of Indianapolis and the Arts Midwest Touring Fund – a program of Arts Midwest funded by the National Endowment for the Arts.
