Conyers Rockdale Council for the Arts was awarded a Bridge grant by Georgia Council for the Arts (GCA), a strategic arm of the Georgia Department of Economic Development. This first-round grant funding for fiscal year 2024 includes a total of 269 grants across 47 counties in three funding categories, which range from COVID-19 recovery support to specific projects to educational programming.


“These vital funds bring life into communities all across the state. Music, theatre, dance, and visual art attract tourists, bring community members together, teach children self-confidence, revitalize downtowns, and more,” said Georgia Council for the Arts Executive Director Tina Lilly. “Through this program, GCA is able to support vibrant communities where people want to live and businesses want to locate.”


“On behalf of the CRCA volunteer Board, as well as the arts council’s dedicated administrators, volunteers, patrons and other community supporters, I express deep appreciation to Georgia Council for the Arts for entrusting us with this grant award,” said Derwin Daniels, Conyers Rockdale Council for the Arts’ board of directors president. “The Bridge Grant will help us strengthen the work we do, so that we can continue providing quality, creative programming for our audiences.”
