Support BCAS!

There are several ways you can further your support of high-quality, accessible, and equitable arts education in Indianapolis. See the opportunities below!
Thank you for your dedicated support!

BCAS teachers participating in annual Teaching Artist BootcampOur Teaching Artists are the backbone of BCAS. They are Butler students, alum, and Indy community members. Our teachers hop from class to rehearsal to the practice room, or from their 9-5 to Lilly Hall. They often work long hours with no meal breaks. BCAS highly values serving our teachers just as they serve our programs and students. By providing our teaching staff with nutritious snacks and meals, we are ensuring that they and their students are gaining the best possible arts education experience.
