Fulton County continues support of Flux Projects

Flux Projects is grateful for the continued support of Fulton County through the Division of Arts & Culture Contracts for Services Program.  Flux Projects was one of 114 organizations and individual artists funded through this program in 2017.  Recipients presented cultural events, educational programs, and other activities that connect, inspire, and transform the lives of Fulton County residents.  This aligns with one of the six key priority areas in Fulton County’s strategic plan:  All people’s lives are culturally & recreationally enriched.

Contracts for Services (CFS) provides unrestricted general operating and project support to nonprofit and tax-exempt organizations, arts & culture organizations, cultural institutions, colleges and universities, as well as units of government that produce or present ongoing arts programming open to the public.  CFS contractors present programs that reflect the cultural diversity of the County, captures the imagination of adults, families and youth, invigorate neighborhood growth, support economic development and provides jobs.

Support for Fulton County supported Flux Projects’s work to engage Atlanta’s public spaces with thought-provoking art that is changing the way people experience our city and think about our community.  To this end we presented a sequential wheat paste mural and video installation by George Long (Sorts) and an interactive literary project with writer Anne Corbitt (The Disappearance of Eliot Wiley).  We developed Flux Exchange to incubate projects that are deeply engaged with Atlanta and its citizens.  We launched the Visiting Curator Series and Curator Confidential to cultivate local talent and provide opportunities for Fulton County artists.  And we launched a new podcast called The Extension that invites cultural contributors to participate in conversations relating to public art in social contexts.

Thank you Fulton County!
