The project logo Metro Atlanta 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 identifying 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 following survey has 25 questions and should take approximately 20 minutes to complete.
