Arriving at the event:
The Rapp Conference Center is connected to the main lobby of Eskenazi Health which faces Eskenazi Avenue. The nearest parking for 3-4 hours is $7.00 at Eskenazi Health Parking Garage, 650 Eskenazi Ave, Indianapolis, IN 46202 (off of Dr. Harvey Middleton Way Drive). Also, Eskenazi Health is located directly on the IndyGo bus line.
As you are on the Dr. Harvey Middleton Way Drive and before entering the parking garage, notice the glass windows of the corner of the hospital to the right. This is the large conference room. When entering the hospital from the garage, go down the long hallway to the main lobby, turn right and then right again at the bathrooms to enter the Rapp Conference Center (make a U shape). The large conference room is straight ahead. The vendors will be in the smaller conference room (across from the large conference room).
When entering the front entrance of the main lobby of Eskenazi Health, turn left and just beyond the bathrooms turn right to enter the Rapp Conference Center. The large conference room is straight ahead. The vendors will be in the smaller room (across from the large conference room).
The Indiana LGBTQ+ Council is looking for sponsors to purchase food, parking, and other costs associated with the community conversation.
