Art as an Agent for Change
Art as an Agent for Change is a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts organization that works to establish alliances with other artists, combat the plight of the oppressed, engage social apathy, promote social awareness and to inform all of the realities that shape our lives through the medium of art.
Art as an Agent for Change, Inc. was founded in 2006 by three college students who wanted to actively engage their community in art that truly educated, inspired, and entertained. A.A.C. has grown as an organization and has adopted a mission that promotes artistic collaboration, community engagement, and working towards social change through arts education.
In the Spring of 2006, an organization originating from the mind of Paul Grigsby was brought to life by a ragtag band of student volunteer talent at Georgia College & State University. On February 14, 2006 the organization performed a play about AIDS awareness called “Trapped in the Pantry.” A.A.C. has since created five “Poetisicals” that utilize the arts of Spoken Word Poetry and Drama to provide educational enrichment opportunities for our host community.
Overtime, A.A.C. has since develop its mission and strives to incorporate all mediums of art into our solution based programming. We live the motto, “Be the change you want to see in the world,” and we won’t stop being until we start seeing. If you’d like to join the movement you can do so HERE.
