Review for Greater Augusta Arts Council, Inc., Augusta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Greater Augusta Arts Council has been extremely successful in distributing funding to the arts organzations in our area for years. Their leadership and procedures insure that every group has a chance to plead their case for much-needed community funding. Their premier event, Westabou, has been a welcome addition to a busy arts fall calendar which features our family's favorite annual festival, Arts in The Heart of Augusta. Arts in the Heart is one weekend where all ethnicities gather to celebrate their heritage and the visual and perfoming arts. Where else can you enjoy cuisine from over 30 countries while taking in performances by local regional and national artists including dance troups, singers and songwriters, storytellers, visual artists, and so mcuh more! Our children absolutely love making their way through the Children's Area, participating in numerous crafts and activities designed especially for them. Being a former staff member, I realize that I may be a little biased, but having produced well over 100 world-class special events all across North America, I can assure you that this event is a must-see festival. It is one of the highlights of our year! So much so, that we even returned every year when we lived out of town just so we could share this experience with our kids.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
