Cultural Arts Initiative In support of Youth Arts Month (YAM) Macon Bibb Parks and Recreation offered several free cultural arts classes during the month of March for children ages 3-14 at the LH Williams Community Center. Our classes included drama, dance, and auditory classes. Our instructors agree that the program has been going well and we are pleased to announce a new selection of cultural arts classes beginning in mid-April.

In December Macon Bibb County Parks & Recreation applied for a couple of Knight Neighborhood Challenge (KNC) Grants. The KNC is a $3 million grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation that is helping Macon take major steps toward revitalizing the College Hill Corridor. The goal of the Knight Neighborhood Challenge is to invest in ideas to restore the land use and social fabric of the College Hill neighborhood, to reawaken the soul of the community through active participation in a wide array of community arts, cultural and sports activities, and to connect us to one another through digital and traditional information gathering/sharing channels. More information can be found at http://cfcga.org/knc We have received notification that we have been awarded funding for two exciting special events; Yappy Hour and the Tattnall Square Sidewalk Chalk Festival! Be sure to check out page 3 for more information on both events!
