Georgia Arts Network Re-brands with New Logo, New Website
Wayne Jones, President
Today, the Georgia Arts Network unveiled a new logo and a new website. Both items reflect the Georgia Arts Network’s commitment that the organization’s mission, services, membership, and advocacy reflect the larger arts community across the state.
The past several years have seen many changes at the Georgia Arts Network. In 2010, the organization assumed the role of Georgia’s designated official arts advocacy organization by Americans for the Arts, which represents the arts community’s interests at the federal level. Last year, the organization changed its name from the Georgia Assembly of Community Arts Agencies, and also broadened its mission to become a powerful voice for artists, arts organizations, arts educators, and arts supporters in Georgia. As the Georgia Arts Network, the group is doubly committed to the mission of advocacy at the local, state, and federal level.
The website at gaartsnetwork.org features the latest news affecting the arts community. Information about the Arts Network’s upcoming events, programs, and membership can also be found there. The site will be expanding to include a statewide arts events calendar and more. In addition to the annual conference, May 5th-7th at the Hudgens Arts Center this year, the Arts Network hosts an annual Arts Advocacy Day at the state capitol, which will be January 29th this year, and organizes a Consultants Bank of pre-screened consultants available to arts organizations at a very affordable rate.
Current Arts Network President Wayne Jones states “we look forward to working with an ever expanding network of members and partner organizations to advance the cause of the arts as a dynamic force in Georgia’s economy and a conservator of the story of our state’s proud culture.”
