Mission: The mission of the Greater Augusta Arts Council is to advance the arts and thus, enrich the quality of life in Augusta and the Central Savannah River Area. From the youngest child to their great, great grandparents and every socioeconomic and ethnic background we are touching lives everyday. The smallest events are those that make us the most proud. The smiles of the children in our ArtScape Camp, the joy from the performers on the ethnic stage at Arts in the Heart or the elderly man taking his first painting lesson he has wished for since childhood. Our community is built one by one in diverse individuals making up the incredible region we call our home. The GAAC has been here for 40 years weaving the arts into our lives. The Greater Augusta Arts Council has a strong history in our community, and with your support, we can continue growing and expanding the vision of the arts community in the CSRA. Our wish for you is to become involved in and support the arts.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

This organization is doing fine with Brenda Durant at the helm.
