Ways you can support artists directly:
Sponsor an Artist at IC-HAITI: $800
This donation will send one of our talented alums to work at Sa-K-La-K-Wel during our annual IC-Haiti event. Your generous gift will help cover their air travel to Haiti, ground transport to Jacmel and incidentals while working at Sa-K-La-K-Wel. We’ll send you a singed photo of your sponsored artist and set up a virtual or in person coffee date once they return to share their experiences first hand.
Sponsor a Workshop: $100
Workshops are a core part of what we do at The Indy Convergence. Each participating artist teaches a workshop in their area of expertise at an introductory level. These workshops are free and open to the public. Past workshops have included dance, improvisatory singing, puppetry, sustainable theater, and social media for nonprofits. The sharing of talents is essential to the participating artists being able to work together productively for the two-week Indy Convergence. We will recognize you in our program and on the website for this donation. See photos of some workshops from 2012 here.
Sponsor one Side Project: $350
The Side Projects our the small genre specific pieces that artists bring to the Indy Convergence to distill, reinvent or take to a new level. They are presented as works in progress at our Open Lab Performance on the final day of the Indy Convergence. As a Side Project sponsor you have meet the director of the project, sit in on a rehearsal, receive a signed poster or photograph and be recognized in our newsletter and website.
Sponsor an Artist: $500
This donation will cover the travel costs a visiting artist- or material and equipment costs for a local artist. We are growing as an organization and want to attract high quality, community engaged individuals to our Convergences. Your support makes it possible for a visiting or local artist to take a two week hiatus to explore their work with the full support of the Indy Convergence staff, community and other participants.
Sponsor the Umbrella Project: $1,500
The Umbrella Project is the wholly collaborative project that incorporates all participants including the directors, designer and resident artist. Each year we choose one artist who is exploring a script, idea or body of material who has a vision to incorporate all art forms. The Umbrella Project receives the most rehearsal time and is presented as a Work in Progress at the Open Lab Performance. Our Umbrella Projects are now on two year tracks. The project will be developed in Indianapolis and either Toronto or Haiti during year one. The following year the project will seek additional funding and travel to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for multiple performances or exhibits.
