Atlanta-based non-profit arts and service organization WonderRoot has reached an agreement with Atlanta Public Schools (APS) to repurpose the former Tech High Charter School building at 1043 Memorial Drive in Reynoldstown for use by artists, performers, students, teachers, families, and the community.
Under a 20-year agreement with APS, the 54,000 square foot space will allow WonderRoot to expand on its current resources with a larger Open Access Studio Program, gallery, performance and community event spaces, dance studio, education space to supplement school programs, offices, as well as a restaurant and community event space.
Currently, more than 40 percent of the studios, which are rented at $1.50 per square foot, have been pre-leased by a variety of working artists and organizations. Artists, nonprofits and creative businesses can apply for studio rentals at this link.
The development, which WonderRoot is set to begin later in the year, will be called the WonderRoot Center for Arts & Social Change. For more, visit wonderroot.org.
