ArtHealthy Festival Weekend

Promoting the combination of art and healthy living.

The ArtHealthy Festival started to help combat the health issues rural residents face daily. Rural residents are getting sicker, as they are more likely to suffer from heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and cancer. Rural Georgians are also more likely to be under-insured or uninsured, according to Georgia’s State Office of Rural Health. Milledgeville borders many underserved counties with regard to health care delivery. These counties include Baldwin, Washington, Hancock, and Putnam. The ArtHealthy Festival is a one-day event designed to highlight barriers hindering abundant living, including a lack of physical activity, in Middle-Georgia.
