Businesses, organizations and other art and health-related groups or activities are encouraged to take advantage of free vendor opportunities. With limited space available, the deadline to register for a booth is Friday, Aug. 30.
“We have close to 100 vendors who have joined this initiative from Atlanta, Macon, Milledgeville and Wilkinson and Washington counties. We still have a few slots available for those interested,” Barnes said Monday. “We have [had] a great response and a lot of businesses and community people are excited about this event.”
During the July Baldwin County Commission meeting, commissioners announced their support to CCM programs and initiatives with a proclamation declaring Sept. 7 as ArtHealthy Day.
“We’re really excited our commissioners believe the work Campus Club Milledgeville, our volunteers and sponsors are doing for the community,” Barnes said. “We appreciate them deciding to make Sept. 7 ArtHealthy Day.”
CCM is a non-profit organization assigned with the task of providing innovative responses to quality-of-life barriers in middle Georgia. With its core emphasis on arts-based education, CCM creates strategies to provide unique service opportunities in the region, free to those who need it most.
“Our goal is to take root in the community and have other art healthy initiatives in the very near future to keep the need of art and healthiness in the conversation going in middle Georgia,” Barnes said. “We believe the community has realized the importance of this.”
For more information about the event, or to become a vendor or sponsor, contact Barnes at 478-387-0200 or visit www.arthealthy.org.
