New Georgia Council for the Arts Strategic Plan
Georgia Council for the Arts announced  the publication of its new strategic plan that was developed to guide the focus and direction of the agency over the next five years. The plan is a reflection of the priorities of the state and its arts industry. Seven regional meetings in Atlanta, Augusta, Columbus, Gainesville, Macon, Savannah and Tifton were held over the course of the last year to gather perspectives from local officials, the arts community, and interested stakeholders. The collective feedback and input gathered from those sessions were used to identify statewide and local needs and to develop strategies that will guide the Council's activities in four primary areas: economic development, community impact, advocacy, and capacity building.
