The Arts and Cultural Affairs Advisory Commission was begun in October of 2017 and consists of what was formerly known as the Coach George E. Ford Board of Directors. The purpose of the commission is to build the community through Arts and Cultural Programs by developing visibility, funding, audiences, information, and partnerships. The commission plans, promotes, and encourages programs to further public awareness of, accessibility to, participation in, and support for the artistic and cultural development of the city and makes recommendations to the city council regarding the establishment of arts and cultural policies and programs, the expenditure of budgeted funds on arts and cultural activities, and the implementation of programs.
The Commission routinely hosts community events at Thurman Springs Park - Home of the Hardy Family Automotive Amphitheater.
Meetings are scheduled once to twice a month the third Tuesday of each month and held in the Powder Springs Senior Center, located on the Ford Center Campus, at 7:00pm.
