Off the EDGE contains a multitude of events (PDF calendar) across the Atlanta area: movement-based performances, peer learning sessions with world-renowned contemporary artists, and panel discussions.
These pockets (zak is Dutch for pocket) of conversation bring artmakers together to invigorate and refresh our perspectives on the places where we create.
At the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center tonight (7pm) you will hear the contemporary chamber music ensemble, Bent Frequency, performing followed by a panel discussion. You can read about it at Creative Loafing here.
