Golden Isles Arts & Humanities’ 32nd Anniversary Celebration event scheduled for Sunday, January 23, 2022 at Village Creek Landing from 4 – 7 pm has been rescheduled to Sunday, March 27th at the same location and time.   “Due to a variety of circumstances, the board of directors felt it was best to reschedule our upcoming 32nd Anniversary Celebration,” said Executive Director Heather Heath.  “Ticket holders will be able to use their tickets for the new date or are welcome to a refund.  We always hate to make these decisions, but we are looking forward to celebrating our anniversary with the community in March.”  Other upcoming events are still scheduled including Peach State Opera’s performance of The Marriage of Figaro on January 30th and upcoming programs for the NEA Big Read: Coastal GA Reads Beloved by Toni Morrison.  For more information, please contact Golden Isles Arts & Humanities at 912.262.6934 or



This fun afternoon will feature good food, great music, and highlights of the wonderful programs and events that Golden Isles Arts & Humanities has brought to the Golden Isles over the years.

Golden Isles Arts & Humanities was founded in 1989 by individuals in the community who had a passion for the arts and wanted to create opportunities that the whole community could enjoy.  Shortly after its founding, the organization took over management of the Historic Ritz Theatre for the City of Brunswick and the rest as they say is history.   Golden Isles Arts & Humanities’ commitment to developing and expanding the arts and humanities in the community has grown in the last 32 years to include an outstanding annual calendar of cultural and community events, arts education programs and much more. 

In 2020, the organization celebrated the 30th anniversary of bringing outstanding programs and events to the Golden Isles community. Our board of directors wanted to make this an annual event but of course, we could not celebrate last January due to the pandemic. They are excited for this fun event to return, not only showcases the organization, but to encourage people in the community to become a member as well. “It's going to be a great afternoon,” says Board President Jason Umfress. “Village Creek Landing is a beautiful spot and we’ll have a delicious low-country boil, cash bar and great music from Backbeat Boulevard. We want to encourage everyone to attend, but really would like those that are currently not members to consider attending, finding out more about what we do and become a member.” Board Member Mike Martin and event organizer added, “Golden Isles Arts & Humanities sponsors so many outstanding programs throughout the year- Performing Arts Series at the Ritz, Arts Education programs for students, and The Golden Isles Penguin Project just to name a few. We are proud of all that we do and want to share that with others.”
