About Us

The mission of the Macon Arts Alliance is to foster and support the advancement of arts and culture in Central Georgia. We strive to be an innovative leader of a diverse and thriving arts community as well as a strategic partner in creating an open, inclusive, and vibrant place for artists, arts organizations, residents, businesses, and tourists. Macon Arts Alliance is the designated local arts agency of Macon-Bibb County.

Macon Arts Alliance was founded in 1984 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit. Since then, the arts alliance has worked to support, promote and advocate for the multi-million arts and culture industry in Macon-Bibb County and throughout Central Georgia. We serve more than 50 arts and cultural organizations and the fine arts programs of five universities throughout the mid-state. Macon Arts Alliance is supported by public investments from Macon-Bibb County, Georgia Council for the Arts, National Endowment for the Arts, and through generous private support from foundations, corporations and individual contributions. We invite you to explore this website to learn about our projects and programs.
