2014 has been a messy year for arts funding in Fulton County, which has traditionally been one of the strongest counties in terms of arts support in the state of Georgia.

Last night, an informal, moderated meeting between arts groups and County commissioners convened at Woodruff Arts Center to try to sweep the mess of 2014 away and discuss ways to move forward in cooperation.

WABE’s Kate Sweeney was at that conversation, and talks here with host John Lemley about what it accomplished.
