The second annual Gather Atlanta is happening at the Trees Atlanta building in Reynoldstown. In their own words, Gather Atlanta is a "coalition of young creative organizations (MINT Gallery, WonderRoot, BurnAway.org, and ThoughtMarker.net) that puts on an annual conference for emerging creative organizations." Basically, if you ever wanted a chance to rub elbows with a large percentage of the people who make Atlanta's art scene what it is, this is your chance. This year's panel discussion includes Dorian McDuffie, Lauri Stallings, Fahamu Pecou, and HENSE chatting about "Art and the Public Sphere."
