We are a city of producers, creators and citizens

And we know that the ultimate vote of confidence in a city is its residents choosing to live inside the city limits so we're looking for arts-inspired ideas that will invigorate living within Marion County. Five finalists will each have five minutes on October 30 to present their idea to a panel of judges and an audience of their peers. One will win a $10,000 prize to implement his or her idea and spark a movement.


We’re excited for 5×5 | RE:POPULATE to take place alongside Achieve and IndyHub’s brand new, half day conference INDY REDEFINED.

Indy Redefined is a conference exploring the people and groups redefining traditional industries and causes in Indianapolis.

This one-day experience will feature local entrepreneurs and leaders who are igniting change in their respective industries as well as national speakers on urban culture.




Closing out INDY REDEFINED will be 2014’s final 5×5 event where five finalists will each have five minutes to present their idea to win $10k. Whether or not you’re able to join us for the half day conference, the 5×5 is free and we hope to see you there.

Finalist announced!
