From standing with our Get Comfortable partners to collaborating on an exciting recipe for a new brew, we know that we can go further faster when we work together. We also know that consulting good data drives decision-making for effecting highly intentional change. That’s why Get Artistic is proud to participate in the Athens Arts Alliance, an informal group of local arts professionals that are working together to advocate for artists in our community through the COVID-19 crisis and its aftermath. Through Wednesday, April 22, 2020, the group is seeking responses to a survey intended to gauge COVID-19’s economic impact on the local creative community. Any Athens-based visual artist, musician, crafter/maker, writer, dancer, filmmaker, or other self-identified artist is encouraged to respond, whether or not the arts are a primary source of income for the artist. The resulting data will help shape the local response to artists’ needs while revitalizing our community through creative, engaging strategies.
