Established in 2005, the Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces was established to support the city’s local art community by raising funds through arts and craft festivals in the Metro Atlanta area.

“AFFPS was formed to create a way of integrating and encouraging both social interactions and the opportunity for individuals and businesses to obtain cross exposures in marketplaces that they may normally not have,” according to the organization’s website.

“Our festivals, events, and markets enjoy diverse social and economic participants. All events are professionally managed and maintained to create a ‘destination’ in which both public and private opportunities for economic growth can be explored. AFFPS works in partnership with the communities and cities in the metro Atlanta area to expand public access to art.”
