Bloomington is fortunate to have a wealth of creative performance and arts events taking place every week. There are plays, concerts, dance performances, art openings, lectures, films--but locating the correct information on events from one source can often be a challenge.

It began as a collaborative partnership between Indiana University and the City of Bloomington, funding the usability studies, system design, and software development of the project. Envisage, a software development house, provided untold hours of programming and design work. The BAAC also worked actively with local arts organizations, visionaries, and technologists to plan and develop the site ensure the project's ease of use and robustness.
