Engage

Regional Artist Survey
The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) Community Development Group and our partners – Fulton County Arts and Culture, the City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs, the City of Atlanta Department of City Planning, and Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. – are working together to create a directory of metro Atlanta area artists, that we can call on to work in partnership on community development and engagement projects. Insights collected from this survey will also be used to guide successful partnerships between artists, planners, and local government.

The goal of this survey is to identify artists interested in civic work and opportunities for us to support these artists as we work toward integrating arts and culture into our agency’s programs, practices, and policies.

The survey has 25 questions and should take approximately 20 minutes to complete.

Who wants to Revive a Version of the Choreographers Guild?
Back in the 1980’s and early ‘90’s, the dance community had a member organization called the Dance Coalition of Metro Atlanta, which served many of the same purposes as DanceATL seeks to do now.  One of the features of the DCMA was a subsidiary group called the Choreographers Guild, which had been organized by a number of DCMA members who regularly made work. This group included Meli Kaye, Pat Floyd, Dee Wagner, Louise Runyon, Kate Holland, Judith Dewitt, Patton White and others, and had decided to organize so that we could continue to develop our choreographic craft. The guild agreed to meet regularly— once every other month—for 2-3 hours each session, and that one member would each facilitate the session by sharing their practices/processes in choreography and making dances.

Some of the current members of DanceATL have started discussing the possibility of creating some new version of the DCMA Choreographers Guild, with at least 6 members expressing a commitment to help to revive it and the purposes that it served.  We are interested in finding out if other DanceATL members may be interested in participating in this revived body, and if so, what sort of focus would you envision this body taking.  What should we call it?  How often would we like to meet? What spaces in the metro Atlanta area would be interested in hosting a session?  How long would each session last?  What other parameters might we place on it?  And when would we like to get this off the ground?

If you would like to help to give shape to this new body, please email info@danceatl.org.

ITP values impartiality, inclusivity, and diversity. We will work to cover anything that is submitted to us. Our mission is to keep Atlanta in the know about their dance community, and to keep the world in the know about Atlanta.
