A Place to Perform
Now funding performing arts organizations impacted by COVID-19 across the Atlanta metro area.
Setting the Stage
A Place to Perform provides grants to nonprofit arts organizations to gain access to performance venues and facilities, so they in turn can produce performing arts experiences for the public. Funding for A Place to Perform is made possible through a gift from the Woodruff Arts Center after the 2014 sale of the 14th Street Playhouse. A Place to Perform continues the spirit of that original venue by addressing:
- Inadequate space. The program is designed to help nonprofit arts organizations that lack adequate performance space for a particular production. Priority will be given to organizations that lack their own primary performance space.
- Regionality. A Place to Perform seeks to serve organizations and audiences throughout the Foundation’s entire 23-county region.
- Building opportunities for audiences. The program seeks to increase opportunities for audiences of varying backgrounds to experience productions by a range of performing artists across the metro Atlanta region.

Supporting the arts
With mass gatherings of people banned to prevent the spread of COVID-19, performing arts organizations have been threatened with significant revenue losses. A Place to Perform funds will be made available to nonprofit performing arts organizations that have had to cancel or postpone performances or events due to the pandemic. Grant recipients will receive one-time general operating support grants of up to $5,000.
