Arts in Community Grant

Deadline: May 20th
Email Application to

To promote creative place-making in our community, the Athens Cultural Affairs Commission offers local organizations, groups, and artists a chance to compete for an Arts in Community Grant (AICG), which support public art projects, events, or art activities in Athens-Clarke County. 

Proposed activities should contribute to the livability of our communities through arts and culture. Grants are awarded based on criteria including: level of community enrichment through the arts, contribution to the local identity, accessibility, and quality or artistic merit. Projects may involve any art form, including: performance, visual arts, events, and technology.

AICG funds may be used as matching funds for a larger project. A report documenting of the activities funded is required of grantees. Grants are offered annually, with the numbers of grantees varying from year-to-year.
