The Irish Arts Foundation of Atlanta, hereafter referred to as the IAF, is established as a non-profit organization for the purpose of supporting the traditional Irish performing arts in the metropolitan Atlanta area.  To accomplish this purpose, the IAF will provide a point of contact, promotional tools and funding assistance to artists in the Irish style wishing to perform in Atlanta.  The IAF will assist selected artists in finding suitable performance spaces, publicizing events and developing sources of funding through grants, gifts from businesses, organizations and individuals, and donations in kind.

IAF networks between existing organizations and identifies local and regional resources to benefit both under served audiences and performers by facilitating performance, education, cultural awareness opportunities and community music activities.
