✨ ATL Creative Mutual Aid

ATL Creative Mutual Aid
This is collected by ATL Design-ish as an attempt to pull together some resources to help Atlanta’s creative community during this difficult time. Resources specific to Atlanta are marked with a 🍑 peach emoji.

Where possible, I’ve included ways to both receive and give – if you have the means, I encourage you to give where you can. (Mutual aid only works if we pitch in where and when we can!)

If you know of another resource that would be helpful to our community, please submit it using this form. Thank you!
