The Harrison Center for the Arts invites you to Connect Your City: Connect Your Neighborhood, the last in a series of four 5×5 events. The 5×5: Indianapolis Arts and Innovation Prize is a contest designed to foster community building and art-focused innovations in central Indiana.  Five finalists will present an innovative idea involving the arts and Indianapolis urban neighborhoods.   The winning project will receive $10,000 to make it happen.

Connect Your City is a free event, taking place Friday, September 6 at 6:30 p.m. in the historic sanctuary at the Harrison Center for the Arts.

HCA is grateful for our connections in the city who are sponsoring and judging this event:

Lacy Leadership Association, Pattern Magazine, two21, The Platform and Urban Times.

Funded by CICF, the Efroymson Family Fund and the Christel DeHaan Family Foundation, this year-long idea-pitching series awards $10,000 to the winning idea at each of four events. Previous 5×5 events: Big Car’s “Revolutionize Your City: Arts + Technology = Innovation” was February 8, and Craig Mince of the Indy Film Fest took home $10k in winnings for his Pop-Up Roving Cinema idea. People for Urban Progress hosted “Make Your City: Make It Happen” on April 12, where Kirstin Northenscold and “The Cool Bus,” a moveable classroom/library retrofitted inside an old school bus, grabbed the prize.  Indy Hub hosted “Face your City: An Urban Love Affair” on June 28. $10,000 went to Malina Jeffers and her “I Am an Artist” project.
