Congrats to Forsyth Central Stage at Forsyth Central High School for their Children’s World of Puppetry production of “Charlotte’s Web” Jan 24-27, 2024. Hundreds of kids from Forsyth Co. Schools as well as the general public got to enjoy this classic tale. Never has feeling so sad felt so good as “Charlotte’s Web!”
The 2024 Penguin Project production of “Finding Nemo, Jr.” was a huge hit at the FoCAL Center, during Feb. 18-21, with the final show topping over 1,200 people in attendance — the largest audience of ANY FoCAL Center show to date!
Congratulations to Bellissimo Theatre Company and the FoCAL Center on a wonderful collaborative production of Sweeney Todd. We were pleased to support this stunning run of shows during Oct 19-30, 2023, with a grant from our 2023 grant awards.
A World of Art festival was a fun and educational experience for all who attended this event, organized by the Cumming Arts Center, on Sept 9, 2023. We proudly supported this event through a grant award.
We had a blast at Heart for the Arts 2023 on April 13, 2023! Thank you to everyone who attended, and a special shout-out to Legends Distillery in Cumming for donating the space for the second year in a row!

Along with our annual grant cycle, we help arts organizations increase their capacity by offering learning opportunities and networking events.
Past examples include:
- Budget and Finance for Arts Organizations workshop led by CPA (and FCAA Board Member) Ann-Margaret Johnston
- A networking lunch in partnership with Forsyth County Public Library, where attendees learned about the library’s Foundation Directory Online database to search for further grant funding opportunities
- “FoCo Arts: Surviving and Thriving” virtual event to help arts organizations navigate the challenges of the pandemic
We build relationships throughout Forsyth County area arts-oriented businesses and nonprofits to help our community’s arts providers grow their audience.
