Facility Rental Information
FACILITY AND USAGE GUIDELINES
For more than 35 years Fulton County Arts & Culture has vigorously pursued quality arts programming through support and development of artists, arts organizations, arts institutions, and cultural programming for residents. This has been accomplished, in part, through the work of five community-based arts centers: Abernathy Arts Center, Aviation Community Cultural Center, South Fulton Arts Center, Southwest Arts Center, and West End Performing Arts Center.
At these centers, Fulton County Arts & Culture provides Fulton County residents with direct services in the arts, including instruction for all ages and skill levels in visual art, dance, theatre, music, multi-media, creative writing, and textile arts.
The Arts Center facilities also serve as event venues for theatrical performances, film screenings, music and dance concerts, festivals, community meetings, and conferences.
Each Arts center is unique in location and the types of spaces available for rent. Rentals are available on a first-come, first-serve basis throughout the year.
If you are looking for space to host an event, be it a performance or a meeting, you might consider renting space at one of the five Fulton County Arts Centers. Spaces are available for rental by contacting the Arts Centers.
Open since 1974, Abernathy Arts Center (ACC) is Fulton County’s oldest neighborhood arts center and is dedicated to providing quality arts instruction to the community in a warm and friendly environment. Located at the corner of Abernathy and Johnson Ferry Road NW in Sandy Springs, Abernathy’s campus includes a renovated farmhouse, the Annex with a fine art gallery and instructional classrooms, and an outdoor plaza.
Aviation Community Cultural Center (ACCC) is Fulton County’s newest neighborhood arts center. The 16,200 square foot facility is located on the grounds of Fulton County “Charlie Brown” Airport along Fulton Industrial Boulevard.
