Hurray for A.S.C.!

A $10,000 grant from the Kathryn Wasserman Davis "100 Projects for Peace" program will help Agnes Scott students support an Atlanta-wide arts activism project entitled Fighting Domestic Violence, Creating Domestic Peace.

Students helping to plan Agnes Scott's Project for
Peace include, from left, Margaret McMillian '10, Nancy
Thebaut '08, Shannon Yarbrough '09, Rocio Rodriguez
'09 and Meg Beyer '10.

"We hope that Fighting Domestic Violence, Creating Domestic Peace will inspire community building, policy changes and awareness among all Atlantans of how individuals can fight against domestic violence through the decoration of a simple tile," said Nancy Thebault, Agnes Scott student organizer for the Saturday, May 26 project - part of the Decatur Arts Festival.

Of the 65 colleges and universities selected to be affiliated with the KWD 100 Projects for Peace program to confront domestic violence, Agnes Scott is the sole representative from Georgia.

Theatrical performances, musical ensembles, a picnic and the opportunity for each participant to paint a tile depicting how his or her life has been affected by domestic violence will ensure the day's memorable quality.

Decatur Arts Festival Update

As the official event planners for the Decatur Arts Festival, people are constantly telling us how great our jobs are - sitting around, planning a weekend-long party/festival. While this is true most of the time, once in a while we actually have to do some work. For example, we're currently organizing the 140+ artists participating in the Artists Market, creating the Festival Program, finding sponsors, lining up the music acts, marketing, mapping out artists tents... Of course we couldn't do any of this without our great Arts Fest committee. Nevertheless, the point is that planning for the 19th Annual 2007 Decatur Arts Festival is well under way. Here are some behind the scene shots from the Decatur Arts Festival office as proof:

Future Doors of Decatur doors, just hanging out in the backyard of our office.
If you're interested in painting a door, call us at 404.371.9583

Artists correspondence.
Almost everything is done online, thanks to, but once in a while we have to use the ol' envelope/letter technique.

The official office copy of the Artists Market layout.
(Hint: the odd rectangular shape in the center is the Old Courthouse on the Square, the little boxes are the artists' tents and the blobs with x's are trees).

So there you have it. We are constantly updating the website, so check it out every once in a while to get more details on the festival. Soon to come is a complete listing of the festival's artists and ArtWalk participants,
