Northeast Indiana is standing at a pivotal crossroads, and our ability to reach our community’s aspirations has reached a critical tipping point. Together, we seek to spur the kind of entrepreneurial creative development that will put Fort Wayne on the map as a hub for innovative thinking, creative place making, and quality opportunity for emerging talent both within and outside of the arts industry. We are grateful for these gifts as your business’s commitment to elevating the quality of life for every individual in our community.

How your business can support the arts in 2023

With one gift, you will support more than 70 arts, culture, and quality of life initiatives across northeast Indiana.

Participate in a Workplace Campaign

Arts United works with more than 30 businesses per year to engage employees as donors, volunteers, and community advocates.

Sponsor the Taste of the Arts Festival

This visible downtown festival will engage more than 50 arts organizations, 70 performances, and 25,000 people in August 2023. This popular event celebrates and supports the rich diversity of arts and cultural experiences in our vibrant community. The festival is open to all, providing access to art without cost.

Sponsor the Arts United Awards

The 16th annual Arts United Awards presentation will take place in 2024 at the Arts United Center. This event celebrates people, nonprofits, businesses, or other entities who are making significant artistic and cultural contributions to one or more communities located within an 12-county region of northeast Indiana.

Tour the Louis Kahn-designed Arts United Center

As the anchor of our seven-venue Arts Campus Fort Wayne, the Arts United Center is an internationally acclaimed architectural icon. It hosts many community events annually in addition to being the home stage for the Fort Wayne Ballet, Fort Wayne Civic Theatre, and Fort Wayne Youtheatre. The building is a must-see for fans of midcentury design.
