Atlanta Legacy Makers has made some big strides this year, despite COVID-19 greatly altering our plans to engage the community via film screenings, panel discussions, community art shows, and other in-person activities.

As we near the end of 2020, we wanted to provide our subscribers with a brief update about the Atlanta Legacy Makers initiative.

  • The first round responses to the RFP for the public artwork have been received and are currently under review. A shortlist will be announced in January, and Round 2 Submissions will be due in mid-March.
  • Additional podcast episodes have been produced and will be shared in 2021. Additionally, an oral history collection has begun and will also be shared in 2021.

Below are some friendly reminders of ways to stay engaged in the meantime. We look forward to sharing more news in the New Year!
