What does my donation do?
Since 2001, the Geauga Arts Council is a non-profit organization dedicated to the enrichment of our community through the promotion of education, access and participation in the arts.
We believe people of all ages should have access to arts and cultural activities
Arts and Culture connects people
Arts education and lifelong learning is important
Participation in the arts enriches lives and strengthens the culture of our community
Economic opportunity and support are essential to maintaining a vibrant arts community
Our goals are to support and develop the arts and culture in Geauga County.
To promote and collaborate in arts educational programming and events
To help develop the arts and culture economy in Geauga County
To promote the rich artistic resources of Geauga County to local, regional, state and national audiences and make the county an arts and culture destination
To promote opportunities for awareness and participation in the arts and culture in our Geauga county communities
We are able to do all of this thanks to Membership Fees and Donations, as well as a portion of every sale made through our Solo Art Exhibits in Local Venues, and at our Annual Juried Art Show.
Our Scholarship Fund:
Children are our future, and "creativity is more important than intelligence," according to Albert Einstein. We believe there to be significant value in continued education in the Arts. It is commonly stated that the career path of an artist is seen as unsustainable, or not economically wise. However, with a quality education, and innovative application of skill, being a creative adult can certainly lead to a fulfilling and financially stable lifestyle.
Our scholarship fund aims to support a minimum of 4 higher education students per year with a $500 grant awarded to each discipline; Dance, Music, Theatre and Visual Arts. This can include, but is not limited to, sophomore or junior year students taking a summer course at a college or university, graduating seniors embarking on a degree in the Arts, or adult students returning to a campus to further their education.
We implore you to make a contribution today to aid in reaching our goal of $2,000 by the end of 2022 so that we may select four recipients next year.
