The area including North Fulton, South Forsyth and West Gwinnett Counties is a wonderful community of active, successful, and family oriented individuals. We’re lucky to live here…this is an area that’s grown remarkably fast—granting economic opportunity to many—without sacrificing its quality of life.
We have beautiful golf courses, great corporate citizens, wonderful neighbors—and some of the best schools in the state. Lake Lanier is close by, plus plenty of parks and good restaurants.
But truly vibrant communities offer more than educational, economic and recreational opportunities—they also offer residents the chance to stimulate creative thought, to feed their spirits as only the arts can.
Today, Johns Creek has an exciting opportunity to add this possibility for its residents. A group of your friends and neighbors, the Johns Creek Performing Arts Foundation, has secured space for a playhouse to sit at the heart of Johns Creek--- here, just north of the intersection of Abbotts Bridge and Medlock Bridge Roads---we envision a venue where the community can enjoy, not only theatre, but broader cultural experiences like the visual arts, dance and music.
We believe the arts play an integral role in the development of desirable, sustainable communities. In fact, the positive impacts of cultural institutions on communities have been proven over and over again. They’ve been shown to help attract and retain businesses and a top-tier workforce; They attract visitors from other areas to attend shows and spend entertainment dollars at local businesses; And they foster educational and creative development for all members of a community—especially children.
