To cultivate healthy collaborations with prolific youth and their families, we welcome proposals from children with brilliant ideas who want to see them grow. If you are the parent of an exceptional child that has a creative idea for a book, play, film, or social demonstration, please submit a proposal. We also welcome proposals from artists, professionals, schools, organizations, and businesses that want to collaborate with us on a new or current project for kids. Charlie’s Port will examine the possibilities in working together.

To submit a proposal to Charlie’s Port, please contact us at

Charlie’s Port was a fiscally sponsored project of Fractured Atlas for several years, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in New York City. Current contributions are from parents, artists, local Georgia businesses, and artists, all of which help execute our projects and develop new works. We are in the process of obtaining our own 501(c)(3).
