The Peachtree Hills Festival Arts has five goals through its community festival:
1) Give back to the community through art; 2) Create a venue that emphasizes local and Georgian artists, so they have a show they can depend on in their own back yard; 3) Bring a festival to the folks in the northern part of Fulton county; 4) Create a festival for Artists by Artists, letting the artist have a voice in the creation and operations of the festival; 5) Create a show unlike any other in the City of Atlanta, bringing together outstanding local, regional and national artists.
Proceeds benefit scholarships for local artists administered by the Georgia Foundation for Public Spaces. To learn more and stay up to date, check out their Facebook page.
