Get Artistic funds strategic grant proposals annually that contribute to the vibrance of Athens’ creative community. Since launching in June 2018, the program has disbursed more than $34,000 in unrestricted grants to both arts-focused nonprofits and individual artists serving the Athens area, which is funded primarily through the Get Artistic beer brand and associated merchandise.
For context, we invite you to review the 2019 program brief and grant outlines to learn about the opportunities offered in this most recent round of funding. Information about 2020–2021 grants opportunities will be published in the summer of 2020. Please direct any questions about the Get Artistic program to [email protected].
Beyond Get Artistic, our partners in the arts community offer a variety of resources to support the Athens creative community. Below you’ll find current opportunities issued by those organizations.
