Fulton County Commissioners approved the 2018 Budget on Wednesday, January 24, 2018 with $40,000 allocated to “Living Out Loud", a pilot program designed to provide additional Arts and Culture programs for seniors. Fulton County District 5 Commissioner Marvin S. Arrington Jr. initiated the development of the program, which provides 10 weeks of classes for seniors for free.
The pilot program will allow Arts & Culture and Senior Services to determine the demand for a continued partnership to serve senior center participants. This collaboration is one of the many strategies to expand access to classes and programming currently offered at senior multipurpose facilities.
The classes will include Theater, Inner Healing Stretch, Pottery, Dance, Visual Arts and Poetry, Creative Movement, Jewelry Making, and Community Chorus. “Living Out Loud” begins March 20, 2018 and ends May 8, 2018. Once the outcomes are determined, Fulton County Commissioners will consider potential expansion of the program. For more information about the program, call 404-612-5780 or 404-613-6000.
