"Its signature event will be “Flux,” the one-night arts festival in Castleberry Hill District held in October and formerly known as Le Flash. In fact, it was Corrigan’s experience at Le Flash’s 2008 debut that led him to found Flux Projects. Enchanted by the energy and the crowds, Corrigan saw in Le Flash the potential to inspire artists and to help his home town see itself as the dynamic arts community he feels it already is.“Atlanta has the highest percentage of its residents in arts-based employment of any major city,” he observes. “The art scene needs to be visible to itself and the rest of Atlanta.” Corrigan put up $90,000 to underwrite Le Flash’s sophomore incarnation in 2009 and started the non-profit to give the event ongoing stability. He has plans to grow Flux, which he took over from founders Cathy Byrd and Stuart Keeler, into a city-wide event."
