Second Annual Arts in Community Grants (AICG)
The Athens Cultural Affairs Commission invites artists, local organizations and groups to apply for the Arts in Community Grant (AICG).

Grants will be awarded based on particular criteria, including:
  • level of community enrichment through the arts
  • contribution to the local identify, and 
  • quality or artistic merit
Projects may involve any art form, including performance, events, technology, and all the visual arts or may be used as matching funds for a greater project.

In 2015 ACAC will award two grants of $1,000 each. Application deadline is February 27, 11:59 p.m., with no consideration for late submissions. Grantees will be notified by March 20 and funds will be released by April 17, 2015. All awarded works must be completed by December 30, 2015. A final report will be requested at the completion of the project.

2014 ACAC awarded two Arts in Community Grants at the amount of $500 to the Georgia Museum of Art for the ARTSwap, an artist trading card project held at AthFest and curator Lizzie Zucker Saltz for the exhibit, “Reverberations: a Athens Celebrates Elephant Six exhibit”.
