INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A special project aims to foster the art of street performance in downtown Indianapolis.

It's called busking, the art of performing in public places for tips. Musicians, poets, storytellers, and magicians are among those who can take part.

The project is being promoted by the Arts Council of Indianapolis, Indianapolis Downtown Inc., and the arts group IndyFringe.

The campaign is scheduled to begin Friday night and continue through Aug. 23.

IndyFringe hopes it will also draw attention to its annual Fringe Fest in August in the Mass Ave Cultural District.

The busking idea is part of a five-year strategic plan for downtown outlined by Indianapolis Downtown Inc.
