ARTS ATL is the recipient of Fulton County’s virtual arts initiative grant. The project, titled Serendipity, will be an original video series centered on a reflection of America, its celebrations, and its shortcomings. The project’s theme will be “Our Hopes for The Future,” highlighting the fundamental idea of hope and how it determines and shapes our future. We aim to explore the cross-section between the arts an increased quality of life and how these can shift perspectives.
We will begin by putting out a call for artists to submit their work to us in video form. Each submission will have to adhere to the theme of “Our Hopes for The Future,” highlighting the artistic disciplines of design, theater, visual art, literature, film, television, or music, ARTS ATL’s primary focus areas. Selected artists will receive a stipend of up to $540 to present their old or new work. Lev Omelchenko, the director of indie films such as Birth of Pleasure and Rent Strike, will function as our creative consultant and editor.
Submissions can be up to 15 minutes in length, and each artist can submit more than one piece of work. Submissions will open on October 15, 2020, and close on November 9th, 2020, at midnight. Winners will be notified by November 16, 2020.
