Our 2022-2023 Get Comfortable campaign launched on February 8th! Click here to learn more.


Complex problems demand creative solutions. But creative professionals don’t always receive the support they need to contribute to community-wide change. As a component of our community impact strategy, we launched the Get Artistic initiative in June 2018 in the hopes of strengthening Athens, Georgia’s creative community.

Our community-focused approach to arts patronage is driven by the belief that investing in individual artists is critical for building a community’s ability to practice creative problem-solving.  Whereas Get Comfortable is focused on helping people survive, Get Artistic is committed to helping others thrive. We believe these outcomes—surviving and thriving—operate as two halves to a whole, each necessary to foster a healthy community.

  • Why: To strengthen Athens, Georgia’s creative community.
  • How: Removing obstacles to empower creative people to be the change they want to see in their community.
  • What: Leveraging our resources of time, space, and money to invest meaningfully in the professional development of individual artists.
