The first annual Art.Movement.Film.Music (A.M.F.M.) Summer Fest, part of this year’s Art on the Atlanta BeltLine, is set for Aug. 8-11.

The events will take place on the Westside Trail near Allene Avenue and include art displays, pop-ups, musical acts, a speaker series, food trucks, art for sale, and much more. It will be co-hosted by The Bakery, The National Black Arts Festival’s NextGen Artist Program, and ARTlanta Gallery.

Each day will begin with a free movement class or demonstration, followed by panel discussions on a range of topics related to public art. Evenings will feature screenings focused on emerging filmmakers. They will be capped-off by the BeltLine After Dark concert series, which is reserved for the over-21 crowd.

Opening day will also include workshops and panels aimed at emerging and established artists looking to propose and place their work on the Atlanta BeltLine. There will be evening performances by Bent Frequency and the Atlanta Opera. On Thursday, the SWATL Oral History Project opens, followed by Halla, Soul Food Cypher, and Morph. On Friday, you’re invited to join us for the Hundo Show, an art sale featuring local artists whose work is priced below $100.

The final day of the festival will feature the Atlanta Indie Market, an artist meet and greet, and a fashion show presented by the National Black Arts Festival and ARTlanta Gallery.
