Ask anyone what makes Atlanta a desirable place to
live, and sooner or later you'll hear about the arts. The arts give Atlanta its
soul, bring the citizens together, keep us asking the important questions, and
inspire everyone to think beyond their daily lives. Very often, the more local
an arts organization is, the more it connects with community and neighborhood
roots and makes a place to live into a real "home."
The Metropolitan Atlanta Arts Fund is The Foundation of Atlanta’s Arts Community. The mission of the Arts Fund is to:
To accomplish its mission, the Metropolitan Atlanta Arts Fund provides grants, strategic support, and related management consulting to small and midsized arts organizations throughout the metropolitan Atlanta region.In short, the arts connect communities of geography and communities of interest. Small and midsized organizations are core to the rhythm and vibrancy of Atlanta. They show new work, incubate ideas and debut talent. They offer safe places for experimentation. They add to countless "micro-economies" throughout the city. And they also frequently struggle to keep the doors open and the lights on, even as they offer such a valuable resource for Atlanta.
The Arts Fund understands the day-to-day challenges, the opportunities and the unique gifts of small and midsized arts groups offer and provides programs to help strengthen them and ensure their success.
