About

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.
