This summer’s community story performance,
Headwaters: Didja Hear? is protected by
three whimsical “gourd dogs” created by leading
local artist Priscilla Wilson of The Gourd Place. “The dogs are too much with us late and soon,”
quipped Lisa Mount, Headwaters producer and
director, about the show’s irrepressible family
dogs, who just have to wonder about how odd
SNCA was recently the recipient of a statewide award for creating Headwaters, the StART Award from the Georgia Arts Network for outstanding community arts project. And the production was featured in a major national study about participation in the arts – people in California are admiring what’s happening in Sautee Nacoochee.
Over the last six years, Headwaters has brought over $250,000 in income to SNCA, including six consecutive years of funding from the highly competitive National Endowment for the Arts.
Most importantly, this is the only play in our goodly portion of beautiful northeast Georgia that’s about this
goodly portion of beautiful northeast Georgia. There
are stories you know, and stories you think you
know, performed by your friends and neighbors. And it
can only happen here, with these people, in this place.
Don’t miss it.
