Region 4 Services

Tippecanoe Arts Federation (TAF) has proudly served as Region 4 Arts Partner of the Indiana Arts Commission (IAC), a state agency, since 1997. It is one of 12 partner organizations throughout the State.

Serving a population of just over 525,000 citizens, Region 4 County Representatives cover the largest geographic area among the Partners, and includes 14 counties: Benton, Carroll, Cass, Clinton, Fountain, Howard, Jasper, Newton, Montgomery, Pulaski, Tippecanoe, Tipton, Warren, and White.

The goals of the Regional Arts Partnership are to increase public awareness and access to the arts, as well as to provide advocacy and support of the arts – all at the local level and regional level. Each Regional Partner provides four core services:

Information & Referral

The Tippecanoe Arts Federation regularly provides and maintains an arts and cultural calendar highlighting the activities of regional organizations and artists. Using integrated software, TAF is able to share information on TAF staff offers contacts for artists and arts groups, instructors, leads on other funding sources, and a host of other information and services throughout the region.

Technical Assistance

TAF offers how-to workshops, leadership development, capacity building, tips for connecting with businesses and more. If you have a topic you would like to be explored geared to artists, arts organizations, or both, we would love to hear your ideas.  Email our Director of Regional Services at .

TAF collaborates with Indiana Non-Profit Resource Network in providing technical workshops for Not-for Profits. Indiana Non-Profit Resource Network posts their on-going workshops for the west central region on their blogspot here: Indiana Nonprofit Resource Network Blogspot
