Additions at Arts United

Arts United announces that two new organizations, Unity performing Arts Foundation and FAME have been invited to join the Arts United Umbrella as provisional principal partners. Principal partners are seen as the foundation of the local cultural community through their mission, work and impact, and have shown sustainability through operations of at least 10 years.

FAME and UPAF previously were members of the Regional Arts Advocates, an arts council managed by Arts United, and have received program grants from Arts United.

Arts United currently has 10 principal partners. ARCH, Artlink, Fort Wayne Ballet, Fort Wayne Cinema Center, Fort Wayne Civic Theater, Fort Wayne Dance Collective, the History Center, Fort Wayne Museum of Art, Fort Wayne Philharmonic and Fort Wayne Youtheatre.

Funding for the initial two-year operating support grants for the two new provisional groups is made possible through the generous support of two Angel Donors, Sweetwater Sound and the Knight Foundation.
