Forging connections in five communities

By creating connections, art has the power to shape—even define—communities. It connects individuals, governments and businesses like nothing else can, and nowhere can this be seen with more clarity than at Noblesville Creates. Our organization serves the communities of eastern Hamilton County, from Fishers to Atlanta. To carry out our mission and spirit of collaboration, we also engage with neighboring cities and towns.

Cultural Growth

Noblesville Creates focuses on three areas of cultural growth:

  • Arts community development by integrating visual and performing arts into downtowns, local parks and unexpected places
  • Artist development by supporting more than 1000 professional artists working in the area
  • Arts awareness by breaking down barriers to the arts for both residents and visitors by taking arts to the people and supporting venues where people can enjoy the arts.
