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

In support of the Get Artistic mission to strengthen Athens, Georgia’s creative community, the DIY Fund exists to empower emerging artists as future leaders. 

Each DIY Fund cycle provides one local artist or art collective with $2,000 in grant funding to support collaborative, community-based projects. Finalists will receive a $250 stipend and 1:1 project development coaching before participating in the DIY Fair: a science fair-style event that takes place at our downtown Athens taproom and showcases the finalists’ projects.
