The Economy of Atlanta’s Hidden Art Scene: Funding, Focus and Facilities

Join the Atlanta Press Club while we explore the aspects of Atlanta’s hidden art scene, including where funding comes from, how media can better cover arts and culture and the key players who help foster the city’s thriving underground art community. How does Atlanta’s support of the local arts compare to other metro areas? What do Atlantans value in the arts? Is Atlanta an arts town?

Join the Atlanta Press Club on Tuesday, August 29 at Hodgepodge Coffeehouse for a panel discussion on Atlanta’s hidden art scene. Hodgepodge will have food and beverages available for sale. Local artists are welcome to display promotional material during the event.
