ArtsATL’s online publication keeps you up to date on the news and issues that impact Atlanta’s arts community. Throughout the year we work with some of the most talented critics, journalists, videographers and photojournalists in the city to publish nearly 700 stories a year focusing on the arts produced and presented in Metro Atlanta. We bring you close to the creatives in our city through interviews and behind-the-scenes stories.
Our contributor-base, 70+ strong, is made up of mostly freelance contractors — many without benefits or health care — who rely on being paid promptly and competitively to ensure they can make ends meet. In today’s political climate, that’s more of a challenge than ever.
In our spring fundraiser, we’re doing things a little differently. Feel passionate about classical music? How about Atlanta’s dance community? The literary scene? Theater? Visual arts? You can fund our sections directly.
When you make your donation, you will have the option to select which discipline you would like to support — visual art, dance, theater, music, books, or film.

“I remember the first time I sat down to talk to someone from ArtsATL about the work I was doing as an artist and my interest in public art. The interest and support ArtsATL provided to me and Living Walls helped us get to a new level. Our audience did not just grow but it also started to think critically about public art. I will forever be grateful for the space and time ArtsATL gave to Living Walls since the very beginning.”
