The Athens Cultural Affairs Commission (ACAC) seeks qualified candidates to fill 3-year volunteer positions.
The mission of the ACAC is to foster the development and enjoyment of performing, visual, cultural, and other arts in the Athens-Clarke County community; to make recommendations to the Mayor and Commission in as many areas of ACC planning and development as possible. For examples of the work we have done, please visit our website. Additionally, the Athens Public Art Master Plan is posted to our website and serves as a guiding document for future work.
The ACAC meets on the second Monday of each month at 6:00 p.m., and additional committee work is conducted between these meetings. Applicants must be Athens-Clarke County residents. It is also necessary that applicants have expertise or demonstrated interest in the arts, public administration, community engagement, outreach, grant writing, and/or arts education and arts advocacy.
This is a fun but hard-working commission; in the past year alone, the ACAC has commissioned 44 artworks (with 75% of these going to local artists), including the Hot Corner Mural downtown and the artistic bus shelters throughout the county. We hope you’ll join us in keeping the momentum and in the quest for continuous improvement.
The deadline for receiving applications is 11:59 p.m. on November 30, 2019. The ACAC will offer invitations to selected applicants for brief interviews in early December 2019. After making a final selection, a recommendation for the appointment will be sent from the ACAC to the Mayor and Commission. The volunteer terms will begin ASAP.
