Williams Alliance for the Arts (WAFTA) is comprised of local artists and art enthusiasts whose focus is supporting arts education and activities for children and adults in the Williams community. The group has plans to build upon many programs they began last year at the schools and introduce a few new ones.
WAFTA is a non-profit organization supported through grants, donations and local fundraisers. The group has received money from groups like the Greater Williams Community Fund, Coconino County Community Incentives, the WEMS Site Council, Arizona Commission on the Arts, Knights of Columbus Charities, and many individuals.
The arts group has supported many arts activities at Williams Elementary-Middle School (WEMS) over the past few years. The group brought several artists, photographers and filmmakers to the school and is hosting programs such as the 8th Grade Identity through Photography Project. Williams Alliance for the Arts has made many purchases directly for the music program at Williams Unified School District including professional quality musical instruments, sheet music, music stands, and student practice/performance chairs.
