Our newly adopted mission is to connect neighbors, cultivate artistic expression, and celebrate our community’s stories through the power of creativity and the arts.
CRCA envisions a community enriched by human connection, creative expression, and celebration.
We maintain the following values:
1. Art is fun and fun matters.
2. All of our community’s stories should be told.
3. We take pride in partnership.
4. We celebrate together.
5. Art is fulfilling.
CRCA is not a part of any government and relies on grants and business and individual contributions to function. Most of our fundraising efforts go to our projects and programs throughout the year. Some examples of these include the Preschool Pops series, ArtSmart Summer Camp, Annual Student Photography Contest in connection with the Cherry Blossom Festival, partnering with Black Heritage of Rockdale County to sponsor symposiums and documentation of our community's history, our Theater Out of the Box program which allows actors of all abilities the opportunity to perform and create in a safe and happy environment, and providing a facility for theater productions that draws people from all over the metro-Atlanta area as well as other events such as stand up comedy, dance recitals and concerts. We are also very excited about our Beautiful Box project and we are in the very early planning stages for another amazing mural thanks to a Vibrant Communities Grant from Georgia Council for the Arts.
Please remember many companies will match your charitable donations! Reach out to your human resources department to find out how it's done.
