In 2022, Fulton County’s Department of Arts and Culture developed a cost-effective concept mirrored by no other county which introduced fashion, arts, culture, and education (F.A.C.E) to Fulton County residents.F.A.C.E has a layered approach with a part of the focus on preparing high school students with knowledge needed to develop career paths in the arts and fashion industry.
In addition, the brilliance of F.A.C.E operated on a budget of under $40,000 during a forty-day cycle in which the program showcased informative panel discussions and events throughout Fulton County designed to combat deficiencies in talent, unnecessary textile waste, and a lack of diversity/inclusion. With the evolution of F.A.C.E, non-profit agencies and other non-governmental entities with resources connected residents in need to invaluable services. The implementation of this initiative promises to have long-term sustainable impact on Fulton County residents.
