DORAVILLE, GA – July 10, 2024 — Doraville Art Inc. was awarded a Project Grant from Georgia Council for the Arts, a strategic arm of the Georgia Department of Economic Development, for fiscal year 2025. The Project Grant helps fund single art projects like art exhibits, theater productions, a series of children’s workshops, an artist residency, or may be used for capacity-building projects, such as developing a strategic plan or providing professional development. As part of this year’s Project awards, 45 entities in 19 counties will receive more than $350,000 in funding.

 

“Arts funding improves quality of life, and Georgia Council for the Arts is excited to help our arts communities fund projects that help solve community challenges, bring people together, and support small businesses,” said Georgia Council for the Arts Director Tina Lilly. “Our arts communities continue to foster economic and cultural vitality, and we are grateful to the Georgia General Assembly for providing this support.”

 

Georgia Council for the Arts received applications from nonprofit organizations, government entities, public libraries, schools, and colleges and universities. Projects may be one-time events,

such as a festival or exhibit, or a series of events, such as a roster of classes or a series of

productions.

 

"Doraville Art’s Fall Fabulous Festival allows our community to experience art without boundaries of language, age, economic status or identity.  Having a festival displaying diversity in style, culture, medium, age and ability allows a universal entry level for any member of our community that attends.  Art is about exploring and creating, not necessarily a finished project and allowing people the space to play in art is a key tactic Doraville Art uses in all our activities." said Doraville Art’s Creative Director Sarah Marks  “everyone is an artist, they just may not have found their artistic medium yet and Doraville Art’s Fall Fabulous Festival gives a large audience the opportunity to explore art in many ways.”

 

Funding for these grants is provided through appropriations from the Georgia General Assembly and the National Endowment for the Arts.

 

Georgia Council for the Arts (GCA) uses Peer Review Panels to judge and review applications following standard practices set by the National Endowment for the Arts. Panelists are GCA Council members and fellow professionals who are experienced in the arts discipline or type of grant being reviewed, or are citizens with a record of arts activities, experience, and knowledge.
