Every year, Lotus works with a broad array of community organizations to either produce or deliver our multicultural programming — expanding and extending the Lotus mission through shared resources, shared expertise, and shared goals.  We are so grateful for these partnerships!  If your organization would like to become a Lotus partner, please email Loraine or call 812-336-6599.

Here’s a sampling of our recent collaborations (apologies for any inadvertent omissions).  Additional partnerships include our array of World Bazaar presenters, as well as the businesses and organizations who provide financial sponsorship to make our programs possible.
