Art In Place 2021
2021 – SSAF is continuing its “Arts in Place” program to now include not only the middle schools, but also the high schools in Sandy Springs. Riverwood International Charter High School and North Springs Charter High School will be running the program this fall. We will be increasing our donation to $8250 through additional funding through our partnership with both the Livingston Foundation and Northside Hospital.
In addition, SSAF will be facilitating a student-to-student art mentoring program with both North Springs Charter High School and Sandy Springs Charter Middle School. Planning has begun, and the program will most likely run from October through the end of the 2021/2022 school year.
SSAF’s mission is “to elevate all Sandy Springs residents through the arts.” Created in 2018, the vision of the organization is, “Sandy Springs is a distinctive arts destination dedicated to enhance and celebrate the cultures, communalities and well-being of our community.” Our grant-making framework incorporates three core programs:
1) City Springs Performing Arts Center-Related Events and Programming
2) Enhancing the Arts Experience for mostly Economically-Challenged Schools in Sandy Springs
3) Support other arts organizations within the footprint of Sandy Springs.
