HCCT and TORCH combine to beautify Hart County square.
TORCH Grant 2021

The Hart County Community Theatre in collaboration with grant writer, Kristin Joyner of T.O.R.C.H. of Hartwell, Inc., is pleased to announce the organizations have jointly been awarded a Georgia Council of the Arts, Vibrant Communities Grant for $5000. Torch and HCCT competed against 57 grants applications. This collaborative project will benefit HCCT,

T.O.R.C.H.’s Railroad Street Project, and the community of Hart. The grant will fund a mural on the back of the community theatre and access to the park.

“This grant is the perfect example of nonprofits working together for a common goal,” Torch spokesperson Kristin Joyner said.

Work is underway selecting a design.  Upon historic preservation approval, the groups will begin the work. Both organizations want a mural that will be complementary to the park with a theatre theme.
