Get Comfortable 2021 has officially launched! Click here to learn how you can get involved.


We acknowledge the obstacles that independent artists must overcome to promote their creativity, and we wish to help remove as many as we can. As a component of our community impact strategy, we launched the Get Artistic initiative in June 2018 in the hopes of helping sustain the vibrance of Athens, Georgia’s creative community.

While Get Comfortable is focused on helping people survive, Get Artistic is committed to helping others thrive. We believe these outcomes—surviving and thriving—are two halves to a whole, both necessary to foster a healthy community.
