JORTSFEST will hold a free, all ages, accessible music performance event on the rooftop of Eyedrum. Since the theme of this October’s Elevate is “microcosm,” we will explore the multitude of genres and identities held by Atlanta’s music scene and how those identities relate to the geography of the city. Representing the sound of their neighborhood (NW, NE, SE, SW) the following performers will play as the audience goes on an auditory tour of the city of Atlanta.
NW – Yani Mo
NE – Pop Weirdos
SE – Fantasy Guys
SW – Blue Tower
The City of Atlanta – Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs presents Elevate: Microcosm, a 9-day public art festival in downtown Atlanta. Artists will explore how a community reflects the larger world around it. Four curators have assembled more than 200 artists to create contemporary art and cultural events in order to spark dialogue around how a community deals with social, racial, and economic issues ranging from inequity to gentrification. ELEVATE: Microcosm will take place in south downtown Atlanta, primarily on Broad Street SW. This emerging cultural district seeks to use creativity to build community and inspire constructive change in collaboration with the area’s stakeholders. The festival will be held from Thursday, October 13 through Friday, October 21.
All events are free and open to the public. Check out the official ELEVATE website by clicking this link: www.elevateatlart.com
