(from the FAA website)
The Foundation For Appalachian Advancement (FAA) strives to promote educational opportunities, economic development, and the advancement of our culture, history and heritage through the arts. The FAA is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization that takes a two-tiered approach to enhancing our Appalachian region.
Our second tier focuses exclusively on Appalachian artists. The FAA will focus on building a community of artists in order to promote their work and achievements. The Appalachia region is home to a multitude of painters, sculptors, writers, poets, musicians, actors, filmmakers and artists from many genres. The Foundation for Appalachian Advancement believes that a vibrant artistic community is a vital part of introducing those outside of this extraordinary region to the experience and arts, heritage, history, and natural beauty that only the Appalachian region offers.
