Home to famous creatives like OutKast, Margaret Mitchell and Tyler Perry while boasting world-class art institutions like the High Museum of Art, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and the Fox Theater, it’s clear art is an integral piece of Atlanta’s fabric. But sustaining and expanding that creativity in the future is not guaranteed. How will we ensure art and culture are prioritized in the cultural capital of the south?
This was the subject of discussion at a CITY CITÉ Atlanta x Marseille 2022 event on Oct. 6, part of the annual France-Atlanta event series, the Atlanta Design Festival and the ELEVATE festival. CITY CITÉ is a Villa Albertine program focused on urban issues and placemaking, with the recent event analyzing the role of culture in our society’s development.
