Strengthening Georgia Through the ARTS!

The Georgia Arts Network is the voice for the arts in Georgia and we can help you become the voice for the arts in your community. We empower you to tell your stories by providing a support network where news, information, and best practices are openly exchanged and practiced.

Our strategy is to position arts and culture as essential to individual and public well-being and the economic development of Georgia as we advocate for the arts on the state, local, and grassroots levels.

You are the best advocate for the arts!

As we approach the 2018 elections, it is important for voters to understand the positions of candidates statewide. We have sent surveys to all candidates for statewide office, and are collecting responses to inform voters. Read more.

 Tips from the Georgia Arts Network Board of Directors: 

  • Invite your elected officials–at the local, regional, and state levels–to your events. One conversation can often make a big difference. 
  • Advocacy is about telling your story. Make sure YOU are the one telling it. 
  • The arts are collaborative. Look for unique partnership and collaborative opportunities within your community. 
  • Here in Georgia, the elected officials want to know how the arts are making an impact outside of Atlanta. The arts are an economic driver and there are cultural opportunities all over the state. Share that information with your representatives!
