    Tara Bradshaw, Executive Director, Downtown Dublin, GA

    Idea Guru

    Tara Bradshaw

    Tara is downtown's yes-girl, rock star, chief do-er, and biggest fan. Her can-do attitude and adventurous spirit have fostered many ideas -- and turned them into a reality. As the Executive Director, Tara oversees DDA's many projects and is always working to engage and attract entrepreneurs, artists, and visitors into downtown. Tara and her husband Matthew are raising two children, a girl and a boy, and they both hope to create a place their children will be proud to call home. Tara's favorite day is farmers market Saturday at Market on Madison.

    Elizabeth Coleman, Program Manager, Downtown Dublin, GA

    Chief Creative

    Elizabeth Coleman

    She has a Theatre Arts degree and she's not afraid to use it. Liz joined the DDA team in early 2017 as the Theatre Director and DDA Program Manager. She oversees the operation of Theatre Dublin, Market on Madison, the Carnegie, and plans fantastic events like First Friday "Art Comes Alive." If that isn't enough, Liz is an incredible, formally-trained vocalist and actress. She's also our resident comedian and big dreamer. There isn't much this powerhouse can't accomplish to make downtown a great place to be. Liz's favorite events are the First Friday concerts, especially our kick off every year at

    St. Patrick's Pig in the Park.

    "Downtown is the hub of the entire Laurens County community. Taking care of and investing in it has been and will continue to be one of the single greatest investments we can make to ensure that our entire community grows. A vibrant and growing downtown will continue to attract industry and new residents to our community and ensure commerce thrives."

    "I am proud to be part of a group of people that are focused on making downtown Dublin a great 'destination.' From the Carnegie Library all the way to the Skyscraper, Downtown Dublin has come to life with great shops and restaurants. It has been a great partnership between City, County, and private investments. I highly recommend visiting as often as you can."

    “I’ve watched Downtown Dublin transform over the past ten years or so from a struggling outdated district to a vibrant progressive cultural scene. Strong architectural and aesthetic choices have driven the success and that is evidenced not only by the visual beauty of downtown but by the sounds and energy of the growing numbers of people eating, shopping, and living there.”
