help us become MORE
When does a building become more than just bricks and mortar? When does a local non-profit become more than the sum of its many volunteers and its mission statement? When does an arts organization become more than a centerpiece for the community it serves?
The GCA works to live its mission: “to invigorate the cultural life of our community by nurturing, celebrating and supporting arts and artists through performance and education.” With the help of our small but dedicated staff, numerous volunteers and supporters, the GCA has been able to provide a wide range of arts programming, including:
•innovative concert programs
•Playmakers and MusiCamp programs for children
•theatrical productions that present the talents of local actors, writers and directors
•a showcase for local, professional musicians from “Red Devil Moon” to Kent Massive to our monthly Open Mic Night
•a cornerstone for community outreach—the Harry Potter Festival, Empty Bowls, MLK Remembrance, Transgender Day of Remembrance; and so much more.
We have well over a hundred events scheduled throughout the year—all while receiving less than 25% of our income from ticket sales.
Please help the GCA continue to serve this amazing, talented community.
