We’ve grown a lot this past year. Not only have our 50+ contributors penned over 600 articles about Atlanta’s theater, dance, literary, film, music, architecture and art communities — we’ve incorporated new methods of storytelling into the fold. We have broadened our scope of coverage in these fields as well as our contributor base.
In tandem, we have completely rebranded, beefed up our calendar page and developed programming to bring our stories into a new plane of existence. Our collaborations with organizations such as 90.1 WABE, The Bitter Southerner, Emory’s Stuart A. Rose Library, Atlanta Jewish Film Festival, Decatur Book Festival, VOX Teen Communications and Atlanta Celebrates Photography have helped engage new audiences with Atlanta’s arts scene while also allowing us to dive deeper into the profiles, news items, opinion pieces, reviews and previews that we regularly publish.
And that’s just the beginning.
In 2017 we hope to keep our momentum — but we cannot do so without your support.
Please help sustain ArtsATL with a contribution to our Annual Fund. By investing in ArtsATL, you are investing in the arts in Atlanta.
“ArtsATL is a testament to the fact that arts writers are a vital part of our community’s ecology,” says executive director Susannah Darrow. “Our publication and programming bolster Atlanta’s arts community by engaging with it and exposing it to others. It’s critical that we remain a free resource to the public.”
Our contributors diligently report and review Atlanta’s endless number of theatrical and dance performances, concerts, books, film screenings and art exhibits and architecture. We’ve brought you close to artists through interviews and behind-the-scenes stories. Contributions enable the website to remain a hub for reviews, news and information about the Metro Atlanta’s vibrant and diverse arts scene.
ArtsATL’s annual fund goes directly to paying our programming’s most valuable asset — our writers. Additionally, your support helps us increase the amount of content we can provide, and aids in the associated costs of running the online publication. We hope that you will consider making a donation to ArtsATL’s Annual Fund to support this critical resource.
The ArtsATL board of directors are matching $5,000, which means your donation can count twice!
