BURNAWAY is an Atlanta-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit
BURNAWAY’s mission is to champion Atlanta as a vibrant creative community, to inspire and educate the public, to interpret the contemporary significance of art regionally, nationally, and internationally, and to elevate discourse about the arts while opening the conversation to new audiences. BURNAWAY exists to continue the established tradition of art criticism and uphold its highest ethical and professional standards while also exploring the potential new media and providing a fresh identity and perspective for the arts conversation today.
We fulfill this mission through our online arts publication, critics-in-residency program, writing workshops, annual print publication, and public programs.
Through weekly reviews, columns, interviews, and podcasts, BURNAWAY attempts to respond to the famous challenge issued by William Faulkner:
So vast, so limitless in capacity is man’s imagination to disperse and burn away the rubble-dross of fact and probability, leaving only truth and dream. (Requiem for a Nun, 1951)
To “disperse and burn away”—a statement about the nature of creativity that compels us to look beyond what merely is and envision what could be.
