Update October 2011:
Eyedrum continues to seek a permanent home. We have very strong candidates for our new location, but each has long-term programming and structural implications we must consider -- from lengthy and costly buildout requirements to zoning restrictions. In particular, we are currently involved in a "pilot program" in Castleberry Hill; we are also pursuing an option in Reynoldstown. We are fortunate with each of our candidate locations to have supportive communities and potential landlords who "get" Eyedrum's mission and approach.
As we work to secure a facility that ultimately meets our needs, we are actively collaborating with venues throughout Atlanta to present our satellite events. We feel that these satellite events have helped drive awareness of Eyedrum among our partners and their communities and have also increased exposure of our partners to Eyedrum's own diverse community. These partnerships ultimately serve to strengthen and drive awareness of the exceptional arts offerings throughout our city.
While Eyedrum may be moving slowly in finalizing our move, we are approaching this relocation with a long-term vision - and a commitment to continuing our legacy as a unique venue for the arts in Atlanta.
Please continue to watch for "Eyedrum satellite" events all over town!
