About Us

Macon Arts Alliance fosters support for the advancement of arts and culture in Central Georgia. We strive to be an innovative leader of a thriving regional arts community. We value strategic partnerships that strengthen the diversity and vibrancy of arts and culture for tourists, residents, artists, businesses, and civic organizations. 

Macon Arts Alliance was founded in 1984 when a Chamber of Commerce Task Force recognized that a coordinated arts community would serve as a catalyst for cultural vibrancy in the area. In 1988, Macon Arts Alliance was designated the official arts agency for the City of Macon and Bibb County. In 2014, the newly consolidated Macon-Bibb County government reaffirmed the designation at its first official meeting. In 2019, municipal funding for Macon Arts Alliance (8% of our current operating budget) was moved from the General Fund to the Macon-Bibb Hotel/Motel Occupancy tax.

In addition to public investment from Macon-Bibb County, Macon Arts Alliance is funded by generous support from individual and corporate donors, the Griffith Family Foundation, other local and regional foundation funders, the Georgia Council for the Arts, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
