Filming in Cobb County Georgia
Filming in Cobb County Georgia

The Cobb Arts VIBE initiative began in 2018 when Cobb Travel & Tourism launched a Cobb arts market study that involved 44 committed arts leaders throughout Cobb County, representing the performing arts, visual arts and cultural heritage arts. Led by MARKET Street Services, the goal was to bring together leaders and stakeholders from throughout the county to create opportunities, conversations and relationships.

We thought, what can local arts organizations do together that cannot be done separately? What would be the impact if we were to create a connected arts community?

As our arts group journeyed through the process, we all began to realize that our common thread was creating experiences. No matter what part of the arts spectrum you were on, everyone created experiences.

And so, our experience was created – and from that the Cobb Arts VIBE, Visionaries Imagining Bold Experiences.

The Cobb Arts VIBE will work together to form a collective vision for Cobb’s arts community.

People want to be in a place where they can be engaged by the world around them. The arts are a catalyst and are an incredible part of connecting with the communities. The Cobb Arts VIBE shows the world that arts are thriving in Cobb.
