GOArts is short for Georgia Open Arts Month which takes place each October.
It's a collective campaign to raise awareness about arts in our area.

Last October, I took up a challenge to see 31 shows in 31 days and blog about it... in the end, I saw 41.
Sure, it was a bit tiring but it was also an amazing opportunity.

The column on the left is a linked schedule of everything I saw.
For a more logical read of this blog o'adventures, scroll down to the first entry and start reading there.

I'm not a reviewer, nor am I an art critic.
I aim to raise public awareness about the great tapestry of arts & culture in our area and inspire you to get out there and enjoy it.

Organic Fun (Event #2)

Well, Le Flash turned out to be the raw, organic, casual entertaining evening I had hoped for. Many unexpected creations, lots of milling about, an atmosphere to just socialize, and an authentic backdrop--the Castleberry Hill neighborhood. Kudos to the folks who participated in the community effort to create an inspired happening.

Ate at Slice -- They were slammed & the staff stayed uber cool. Two thumbs up for the pizza!

There was a nice confluence of dancers & dance makers in attendance last night, both as performers and as spectators supporting their (our) peers. (It was great to run in to y'all.) Without a doubt, gloATL kicked it up a notch last night. Audiences were truly intrigued and trekked everywhere with those dancers, hugging them even closer than they did at rapt. Lauri Stallings and the company & crew create a complete experience, making us very aware of the nuances of our surroundings where they perform. They adeptly use dance to draw our attention to the varities of the landscape, soundscape, built environment, and technological interfaces.

Daniel Timms provided the ultimate entertainment for the after party -- the famous Iron Pour down by the Elliot Street Pub.

Do we HAVE to wait a year to do it all again?
