ABOUT THE PROJECT: Last exhibition season, we heard you when you said that we could do things differently with the Art on the Atlanta BeltLine program. We listened to your feedback as you suggested changes. A draft of the proposed changes can be found at www.beltline.org/engage-meetings. Following discussion about Art on the Atlanta BeltLine, we will kick off the planning process for developing a Strategic Implementation Plan for Arts and Culture on the Atlanta BeltLine.
The Arts and Culture Implementation Plan will support strong, livable communities and increase creative activities along the Atlanta BeltLine. This plan should address methods to utilize the unique transformative potential of the Atlanta BeltLine to improve neighborhood connectivity and access to cultural amenities. It will also detail opportunities for visual and performing arts, historic considerations/exhibits, as well as actionable funding strategies.
Please join us to help shape the future of Arts and Culture along the Atlanta BeltLine.
