Atlanta Arts Funding

At today's Metropolitan Atlanta Arts Fund luncheon (where the organization announced next year's grants, and CORE received one! Yay! Thank you! Do a little happy dance! :) But aside from all the fantastic arts groups that received funding from MAAF, (including the Georgia Ballet as the other dance org in the bunch, congrats!) the big, news-worthy announcement was by Mayor Reed. He spoke and told the crowd that he plans to restore all the funding for the arts through the Office of Cultural Affairs, which was recently proposed to be cut in half in the next city budget. So, another reason to celebrate, Atlanta dance people!
Here are some articles about the announcement, and a few list the grantees too:
