Directory of the Arts in Georgia

In early 2015, ArtsGeorgia launched an initiative addressing the feasibility of a Directory of the Arts in Georgia. The Advisors met and made the following recommendations:

• C-4 Atlanta will ask Fractured Atlas about interest/feasibility in expanding SpaceFinder Atlanta to the state of Georgia.

• ArtsGeorgia will develop a Directory of Directories to other directories, calendars and related resources. This will be considered for web and print versions.

• ArtsGeorgia will develop a statewide Arts Directory of arts organizations and local arts councils beginning with a prototype of 5-10 entries to test design (inspired by Chilliwack) or other examples and discern funder interest. The prototype will require the development of a useful taxonomy and then recruiting local arts councils and arts organizations to participate.

• C-4 Atlanta and ArtsGeorgia will partner on the development of a Directory of Artists with listings for metro Atlanta artists and Georgia artists accessible on multiple websites. An initial step will be consulting with an information architect for advice and guidance on the creation of the database structure.

• ArtsGeorgia will continue to develop AV options with a possible YouTube channel for the statewide directory of arts organizations and local arts councils.

Implementation of the Advisors’ recommendations begins with the new Directory of Directories & Calendars.
