A Place to Perform is an initiative of the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta created after the theatre space of the 14th Street Playhouse became unavailable to a wide range of Atlanta’s nonprofit performing arts organizations. Historically, A Place to Perform has provided grants to nonprofit arts organizations to assist them financially in gaining access to performance venues so they can produce performing arts experiences for the public throughout the metro Atlanta region. In addition, the Foundation recognizes the long-lasting impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic on the Arts community, particularly in-person performances.
