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. All DIY Fund finalists will receive a $250 stipend to participate in the DIY Fair: a science fair-style event that takes place at our downtown taproom and showcases each finalist’s project pitch in a fun, visual way.
Please note that the fall 2021 DIY Fund cycle was postponed to 2022. Therefore, in 2022, there will be two DIY Fund cycles with DIY Fairs in the spring and fall.
