For a long time, A.A.C. has been working with its local community and supporters to put together programs on a shoestring budget. We’ve financed multi-city tours, poetry festivals, and provided seminars and workshops throughout the State of Georgia.

To expand our programming, we started thinking of ways to increase our capacity to provide services to our host community and to spread the valuable message that connects Art with Activism.

We could’ve set up a slew of fundraisers, but we really wanted to work together with our friends, folks, and fans to Jumpstart the budget of our Organization in an extremely effective manner. With that said, pending a Dec 1st approval, A.A.C. is proud to announce we’ll be in the running for a $50,000 Pepsi Refresh Grant during the month of December.

Obtaining the grant will be impossible without your support and we’ll need you to vote as often as possible via text message or by logging onto the Pepsi Refresh site and casting your vote. Voting starts December 1, 2010 @ 12am and ends December 31, 2010 at 11:59pm. You should vote once per day for A.A.C. and browse for other ideas on the site you may deem worthy of your vote. We’ll post more details about voting on Facebook, Twitter, and Blogspot as we receive more info from the Pepsi Refresh Site. So stay tuned and get ready to text your votes.
