Partners in Imagination is ARTC's initiative to spread awareness about what is possible in a collaborative community. By channeling the energies of multiple non-profits into common goals, ARTC hopes to raise awareness of various causes through the Magic of Radio.
Our Partners in Imagination are chosen for their relevance to the performance as well as the high value of their mission. We anticipate a wide variety of deserving non-profits will benefit from this unique program.
Center for the Visually Impaired
The Center for the Visually Impaired is our annual Partner in Imagination during the Christmas holidays and has been our charity of choice for the past four years during this giving time. It only makes sense to us. Our art form is uniquely adapted to the needs of the visually impaired and we enjoy knowing that we have made a contribution to their mission.

Delving deeply into the arts and the many cultures of the world, CORE unearths and presents unique and compelling dance experiences. Guided by a strong sense of community responsibility, CORE uses dance to educate, to question, to connect, to heal, and to inspire.

Atlanta Humane Society
October 23-24, 2010: $127.50
The AHS is the oldest private charitable organization in Atlanta, founded in 1873 following a visit to the city by Robert E. Lee. The animal charity was originally chartered to protect women, children, and animals and remained a child protection and animal welfare society for 79 years. The Shelter, now a widely recognized pet adoption center, clinic, and educational program provider, was originally located on Marietta Street and moved to its present location at 981 Howell Mill Road in the 1930s. AHS does not euthanize for time or space.
While The Island of Dr. Moreau may seem a macabre choice for material to benefit the Humane Society, the horror of animal cruelty and the need for protection and awareness is not evident more clearly in any of our other work.
Georgia Aquarium is an entertaining, intriguing and educational experience for guests of all ages. While promoting a fun and enjoyable learning experience, the Aquarium instills in its guests a new appreciation for the world's aquatic biodiversity.
Georgia Aquarium's 4R Program is designed to positively impact the health and well-being of aquatic life from around the world and your contributions directly help us with this important initiative. Our performance of The Last Dragon to Avondale helped highlight the impact that habitat loss has on threatened and endangered species.
