Georgia Council for the Arts empowers the arts industry in Georgia and artists around the state to cultivate healthy, vibrant communities that are rich in civic participation, cultural development and economic prosperity. As a division of the Georgia Department of Economic Development, Georgia Council for the Arts provides grant funding, programs and services statewide that support the industry, preserve cultural heritage and create increased access to high quality arts experiences.
The Council's funding not only increases the number of people participating in artistic and cultural activities, but it also creates jobs, supports education in the arts and enhances community identity. Funding for Georgia Council for the Arts is provided by the Georgia General Assembly, the National Endowment for the Arts and other private and public sources.
