About

Please do my show for free… Trust me it's going to be great exposure..
I thought we were cool like that ?.....  I promise I’ll pay you next time…

Every artist has heard these words. Help us break the mold, and set a standard for the 5Arts FEST.. We value artist and want to show that by paying them for the art that they share with us so generously. Your pledge will directly support the 30+ Artist that have graciously come on board to support the dream of our grass roots Arts Festival celebrating the artist in all of us.

If you are a supporter of the Arts, an advocate for Art in schools, or just love the beauty that art gives us, then help us properly show our appreciation by compensating these artisans.

The Video represents the type of festival we're producing. The conceptual images from the Galway Festival are mixed in with interviews of shop owners in Little 5 Points. With your help we'll bring this excitement to Atlanta.

The 5 Arts Foundation is a non-profit organization committed to creating positive social change while preserving a vital arts community. Our major initiative this year is to produce an interactive arts festival in the Little Five Points community The purpose of the festival is to celebrate the unique vibrancy of the area, spur an increase in small business revenue, and revitalize and promote positive community impact.

The 5Arts Fest is an interactive festival designed to celebrate people who contribute to the Arts community. The vision of the 5Arts FEST is an awakening of your inner artist by encouraging festival patrons to be active participants.

“The 5Arts FEST is not a festival you come to, it’s a festival you contribute to.”

Unlike any other street festival in Atlanta, The 5 Arts Fest will unshackle the exclusivity of the stage and blur the lines between pedestrian and performer. Like Alice in wonderland The 5 Arts Fest will usher you through various story lines of sight, sound, taste, and touch, as you journey through the 5 Arenas of Art.   


The 5Arts Fest is the right time and opportunity and Little 5 Points (L5P) is the right place. The L5P community has long embodied and embraced the strength, ingenuity and courage of anyone willing to develop their own unique sense of style and invest in the enterprise of small business.

The 5 Arts Foundation is proud to present the 5Arts FEST as a way to celebrate and promote the innovative ideas and positive energies that sustains the business district of L5P.

THE LOGISTICS:

  • Date: 09/ 06/ 2014 ( 10 A.M until 10 P.M)

THE LAYOUT:

The 5Arts Fest will consist of 5 simultaneous Arenas all specific to their genre of Art.  Each Zone will have it's own look and feel all complementing the overall theme of "WONDERLAND"

A majority of the Sets and Props for the various Zones at the 5Arts FEST will be created through a partnership we've developed with the AmeriCorps youth group program (FACAA).

In an effort to engage in positive civic change for urban and inner-city youth, we developed an opportunity that offers students being taught through AmeriCorps and Habitat for Humanity an imaginative platform to apply the carpentry and home building skills they've been taught through the FACAA program.

Risks and challenges

Our number one "Risk" is Rain.... but you know Atlanta.. It will rain for 30 sec like a Florida Hurricane. then the Sun will shine like it never happened... This is a rain or shine event ..!!

What Does it Take to Make a Festival this size happen ??

1st -- A whole lot of guts to begin with, and a true desire to want to create something positive and memorable. There is slim to no chance of making any profit for the first couple of years on any festival, So we do it for the love of the Arts.

2nd -- Permits and Permission. The Core team members of the 5Arts FEST committee have been working (voluntarily) for the past year to gather all the permit requirements and the appropriate permissions in order to have this festival become reality. We have also hired the Best Permit Gurus in the City to deal with City Hall.

We've also been fortunate to strike deals with the Premier Food and Alcohol Vendors in Atlanta, Not to mention the Police Dept,EMS, Sanitation, Stage, Sound and Lighting, Port-a-Johns, City Council Members, NPU Leaders, Urban Design Commission, Department of Transportation and Office of Cultural Affairs

Ohh yes we've been busy.......Our core team is amazing, and fully dedicated to making this happen (now imagine what we could do if we were funded...)
