What is Amplify?

 

Amplify is a professional development program for individual artists and creative professionals. It includes a professional membership program for individuals and a workshop series to develop the business skills of creative entrepreneurs. Amplify’s goal is to help creative people make a living and a life doing what they love in Central Georgia.

It was originally founded in 2014 by Macon Arts Alliance, but after discussing it with The 567 in 2016, both organizations decided that Amplify aligned perfectly with The 567's experience and goals. The 567 is re-launching Amplify as part of The 567 this year.
