Project Description

The Traveling Show

social performance in rural places

The Traveling Show is a series of community driven, artist led initiatives made in collaboration with local government, businesses, schools and artists seeking to elevate the cultural, spiritual and historic assets of rural Georgia. Since its Fall 2013 launch, we have created social art with 17 towns through 51 public initiatives for a population of 37,000.

Walker County is generously supported by the Carl Cofer Family. ‘from the roof down is a commission of Georgia Department of Economic Development, Columbus State University, and Pasaquan Preservation Society. The Traveling Show is supported by a SEED Grant from the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation. The project is supported by major funding from Georgia Council for the Arts in collaboration with National Endowment for the Arts, and Georgia’s Economic Development Department. The Traveling Show is supported with an Artists’ Residency at The Goat Farm Arts Center. The project is supported by AIR Serenbe.
