"The world always seems brighter when you’ve just made something that wasn’t there before." -- Neil Gaiman

About the Project

Since 2010, C4 Atlanta has offered thousands of artists in the metro Atlanta area professional development opportunities. Each year, we ask that generous people like you help us raise money so that there are NO barriers to these opportunities. With your support, we have provided tuition wavers to hundreds of artists. 

Tuition wavers go to: 

  • the young artist who is just out of school
  • the mother who is paying for childcare and other work expenses 
  • the father who is retired and wants to finally pursue his passion
  • the person who lost their job and needs a resume brush-up
  • the person who is ready to leave their day job and take a chance on being a freelancer
  • the young collective that wants to start a theatre company
  • the person who doesn't have internet at his house and is living on a shoestring budget (yes. this is a true story)
This list goes on.

What they all have in common is a passion to keep learning. To keep growing. That's where C4 and our partners help. Together, we provide quality education at affordable prices--and often for free. 

Please consider a donation to help serve our mission...and to help your friend, your partner, your spouse, your neighbor, and your fellow Atlantan have access to business development classes in the arts. We all benefit from it. We all thrive together. 

Imagine this - you support this campaign, C4 awards your dollars to a local artist in need, that artist builds their business plan during our Ignite class, they then launch a theatre production, and that production touches the heart of a young aspiring, theatre-maker. Your dollars change lives. Literally.
