Role of the Commission

The City of Fishers Common Council established The Commission with the purpose to “assist the City in becoming a community in which arts and cultural activities are recognized as vital components of community life, valued and promoted for their economic benefits, and represent and integral part of establishing a vibrant community and lifelong learning”. The Arts & Culture Commission is the nexus between the local government and the residents of the city, bridging the public and private partnership. 

Along with meeting during the year, the Commission has also established three subcommittees. The Arts & Culture Master Plan Subcommittee would meet every three years to refine and update the master plan document. The other two subcommittees, Nickel Plate District Cultural Designation Subcommittee and the UDO Community Art Subcommittee, assist the Commission throughout the year.

See the Nickel Plate District Boundary Map.
