Arts at the Educational Foundation of America (arts@efa) is a national program that supports arts-driven approaches to social and economic revitalization of depreciated communities. By investing in artists, creative initiatives, and cultural institutions, arts@efa hopes to encourage artistic and community collaboration, deepen local pride, and champion the arts as an economic driver.

 Arts@efa believes that creativity has a integral role to play in community revitalization. By partnering artists with deserving communities and nurturing their relationships, we feel we can answer civic needs in a way that will build local pride and promote the social vibrancy that comes from positive, community-based change.

Chattanooga is very grateful to have arts@efa investing in East Chattanooga along Glass Street. Glass House Collective’s programming for 2014 includes The Artist Grants Program and has been made possible by these guys! Thank you!
