Resources for Artists
Atlanta Artist Relief Fund
With the rise of Covid-19, our Atlanta theatre community is facing an existential threat. Many Atlanta artists are out of work for months; unable to earn an income and facing a devastating financial blow. The Atlanta Artist Relief Fund is delivering free home-cooked, nutritious meals to the doorsteps of artists who are unable to leave their home or out of work.
Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed: The Virtual Rock Experience

In My Granny's Garden
The Kathy and Ken Bernhardt Theatre for the Very Young
Inspired by Pearl Cleage and Zaron Burnett Jr.’s children’s book of the same name, In My Granny’s Garden invites our youngest audiences to explore the glory of growing your own food. Watch a tiny seed become a field of corn, green beans, collard greens, and bright red tomatoes. Step into a visual feast inspired by world renowned artist Radcliffe Bailey’s original paintings, and discover the one superpower that fuels Granny’s garden. This fully immersive play promises to leave you nourished in body and soul.
