Cultural Arts Center for Johns Creek

The Financial Feasibility Study is underway!
A Project Name is selected - Legacy Center at Johns Creek

The dream of having a facility dedicated to visual and performing arts and culture in Johns Creek has long been a conversation among arts professionals, arts supporters, elected officials and other leaders in the community. Three studies since 2016 have shown the need for such a center in Johns Creek. The latest was a 2018 feasibility study by Webb Management funded through the Johns Creek CVB with Hotel/Motel tax revenue.

Financial Feasibility Study Convergent Nonprofit Solutions has begun the financial feasibility study and are expecting to present their final report before Thanksgiving this year. The 15-member Task Force, formed by the CAAJC to lead this project, is working closely with Convergent Nonprofit Solutions to expedite completion of the study and will continue working on other aspects of the project.

Funding for the financial feasibility study has been provided by the Fulton County Board of Commissioners, due in large part to the efforts of District 1 Commissioner, Liz Hausmann. On March 25, 2019 the Johns Creek City Council passed a resolution in support of the Cultural Arts Center project.

This study is the next step toward launching the financial campaign for the proposed multidisciplinary cultural arts complex.

Legacy Center at Johns Creek is the name that has been selected for this project. Legacy is defined as something handed down from one generation to the next, so encompasses the history of arts and culture as passed down through the ages. Legacy also implies creating something for today and for the future. This name is for the project only. The name of the facility will be determined later.
