The Spirit & Place Festival is unique to Indianapolis: an annual series of themed events that spotlight traditions in the arts, humanities and religion, and inspire unusual partnerships. Big Car’s been a proud Spirit & Place participant each year since 2009 with these events related to each year’s festival theme:
2015 / “Dream” : A Surrealist party at the Glendale Branch Library including Shark heads, music, and peculiar finger foods.
2015 / “Dream” : 5 x 5 Idea Competition: Dream Indy is a team art-based competition, the winner gets $10,000 to turn their dreams for improving the city into reality.
2015 / “Dream”: 20th Annual Public Conversation: New Dreams for Indy, a night to learn what Indy’s young artists, entrepreneurs, and others dream for the future of Indy.
2010 / “Food for Thought”: This cultural showcase event in the middle of an international grocery store was a turning point for Big Car, turning our focus to a new neighborhood (the Lafayette Square area on the westside of Indy) and a new way of working (social practice art).
