This year, the Arts Council is raising $20,000 to continue our mission of connecting arts to the community through our artist grant program, public art, and community event planning and we need your help!
To jump start our fundraising effort and inspire Athens to make more art, we are issuing TWENTY 2017 challenges (one for each year of the Arts Council).
Each month between February and November 2017, we will be issuing TWO challenges. The themes for these challenges will have a wide range of forms, including visual art, film, music, dance, and literature. So, if you can’t compete this month, come back next month for two all-new challenges.
more to come…
We are excited to see all of the great submissions from our community of artists, local businesses, and supporters of the arts in Athens! Here is how you can complete the challenges:
- STEP 1: Create art in the one or both of the two themes inspired by the number 20 (for example, in February you can make art related to food and/or fashion that is inspired by the concept of ’20’).
- STEP 2: Tag a picture or video of your art with the appropriate hashtag, #foodfashion2020, or e-mail your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 28th.
- STEP 3: Donate $20 (or any amount) to the Arts Council 20//20 campaign to support community arts: https://athensarts.org/
- STEP 4: WIN PRIZES from our sponsors (including Marti’s at Midday and Home.Made!), a feature in our online gallery, and recognition at our the 20//20 gala+show+screening in January 2018.
You can participate in the challenges, find out the next challenges, and view other participants’ submissions by checking back at our website and continuing to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
And of course, you can donate to the Arts Council from our website athensarts.org at any time during our 20//20 campaign.
