    StreetStage, Atlanta, the South's first festival of street performing, is organized to bring extraordinary performing artists from around the world to Atlanta's residents and neighborhoods.

The event features variety performances, not only presented in a streetsetting, but also theatre venues. An educational outreach is anintegral component of the festival as well.

The organization's intent is to:

1. Bring the Atlanta community together through the sharedappreciation of this most fundamental performance style. Demonstrations of skill and wit, of art and entertainment serve as a bridge between individuals and demographic groups.

2. Help to revitalize the downtown business district.

3. Foster an environment that encourages and values street performance/popular entertainment for its contributions to the creative and cultural life of the city; that recognizes the
laboratory for creative expression that is street performing, and that allows innovative, out-of-the-box thinking to find its own audience.

4. To establish a diverse artistic legacy for the enjoyment and cultural enrichment of the families of Atlanta.
