:gafurs:Happy 2 Years of GeorgiaFurs!!

We’ve survived 2 years of GeorgiaFurs! WOO!!!

Ahem. The veterans may point out that GAF has been around for much longer than two years. This is true; however, this is the 2nd year since our revitalization with new leaderships, activities, events, and opportunities to get together as one community.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for trusting us to bring you some of the best furry activity in the state and for trusting us to keep your community safe. It certainly hasn’t been easy through 2020, and 2021 we’ve finally started to dip our toes in the waters of in-person events. Now in 2022, we’ve done more in-person events than ever and we’re not stopping there! We want to be better, do more types of events than just FWAffice, provide a better moderation and improve our safety within our community, and so much more. We cannot do this without the input of our community.

Feedback is an important aspect of our community. As such, we’ll once again be releasing a full GAF Survey for the year 2022. Therein, you can tell us everything: what you want us to change, what you want the community to change, what activities you’d like to see, what we could do better for you. This is your chance to be heard.

From last year, we’ve decided to incorporate new changes to our rules by expanding it further. We also were looking into ways to make our process a bit more streamline and help our community feel safer from what we’ve learned in this year. There’ll be more to announced on this, so look forward to these announcements AND the survey by the end of the month.


🎨 AOTM and A Special Opportunity is incoming!

🎃October’s Artist of the Month is PUCK

Our first AOTM in a while! We’ve been meaning to get back into the groove of things for artists, so here we are!

We have an upcoming opportunity in which we will need your help! Or rather, it may be an opportunity for us to help YOU instead!

We have a special event coming up, something…big. And something artistic that we’d like to run by you. I don’t think you’d want to miss it, so if you’re interested, please make sure you check out the GAF Art Studio Group chat/Channel for event information. This is coming really soon!

P.S.: AOTMs and the Previous Art Monthlies will be released soon. So do not worry~ It’ll be posted on our webpage once it’s complete!


:gafurs:GAF MINICON COMING SOON!

Finally! We’ve teased this nearly all year, and we’re excited to announce that we are almost ready to disclose the details of our upcoming GAF MiniCon: an event catered to all the locals of GA with the idea of bringing a very miniature con experience for those looking to dip their toes!

The date for this event will be announced on our private community platforms! We’re announcing this early so you can make arrangements early!

There’ll be more details to come as, but for now: know the date and know that there’s a price of entry for this event!

Start preparing, GeorgiaFurs~


That’s all, folks! Let’s get spooky this month, yes?

🎨 AOTMs and Art Monthlies are BACK!!

That’s right, fellow artists! We’re going to be bringing back the Artists of the Month and the Art Monthlies!

For those who don’t recall, every month we promoted one of our local artists in our group so that everyone can see their latest work and know where to find them for commissions. The monthlies are art trade/ prompts we give to our artists so they can have a little something to practice on each month for each other!

We always strive to help our artists out with small events like these and, hopefully, expand to bigger, more in-person events! If you’d like to get involved as an artists in the community, be sure to reach out to Shusky or any of our admins to ask about the GAF Art Studio!


That’s all for now! …For NOW! As we do plan a sort of “mid month” update. There’s something big in the works for next month…and we hope we are ready to announce it by then :3 so stay tuned~

Stay peachy, and AWOO GeorgiaFurs~

🍑GeorgiaFurs Announcements – August🍑

Awoo, GeorgiaFurs!

We’re sure everyone is eager to see what we have planned! However, the staff at GAF has decided that this month we will NOT have any OFFICIAL GAF events. Instead, this month will be dedicated to our current staff.

You see, as we grow as a community, there are a lot of features we’d like to work on, events we’d like to plan, people we’d like to help with their events, artists we’d like to promote, and so much more! All of this takes effort, it takes time, it takes dedication, and it takes a bit of training. This month, GAF will dedicate the time to work within to realize these goals and make room for new ones. We’ve talked about a full rework of the Discord, consistent activities for artists, a shorter TL;DR announcements, and a proper return/appeal process for members. Not to mention, the Mini Con that’s still being worked on and would like to announce…soon!

We want to be able to keep bringing in events and activities, to ensure our members feel safe and inspired to host their own things, and to help our community of individuals grow! All of this will take some hard work. We apologize for those looking for events this month, and we thank you for taking the time to read the reasons for it. We hope you understand!

NOW! What’s next?

We aren’t totally without of events: GAF is just ONE group that makes events mainly in the Atlanta area. The groups at the GAF Hubs still makes events for their regions and cities! Be sure to check below for the list

Also…we do have a neighboring convention happening:

GAF at Megaplex

A lot of our members will be going to Megaplex in Orlando! We intend to try and get our group together to keep in touch at Megaplex; coordinate some suiting; maybe go eat dinner together–something of that sort!

We’ll be making a special Megaplex group chat JUST for our members, available only to those already in our group chats. So be sure to join the chats if you’re interesting in keeping touch!

🍑GeorgiaFurs Announcements – July🍑

Awoo, GeorgiaFurs!!

Here we are on our website! We’ve finally done some rework to be able to post our announcements and details here without any character limits! It’s still a work on progress and we’re still learning a few of the kinks–as such we apologize for the late posting of events!

From now on, all of our events details will be posted here! We’ll use the platform’s announcements more specific to the platforms (TG/Discord updates, promotions, maintenance, etc.). We’ll be using a consistent format of updating the event pages based on what events are happening at a given time, location, and who is running it (in other words, what GA group chat runs it).

So, let’s not wait any longer:
