About Us

Public Art for Public Health.

Bloomberg Philanthropies invited mayors to apply for a $1 million Public Art Challenge grant. The Public Art Challenge brings together mayors, residents, and artists to develop innovative, temporary public art projects that address important civic issues in their communities. Our Public Art Challenge project, Thriving Together Atlanta will raise awareness of how systematic racism continues to impact the health and well-being of our citizens. 

Thriving Together Atlanta represents an innovative collaboration between the City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs, the CDC Foundation, National Black Arts Festival, and Out of Hand Theater, aimed at tackling the pressing issues of health disparities, inequities, and the impact of racism on public health. This collaborative effort engages communities through the power of arts and culture, to educate, empower, and mobilize individuals towards positive action. Thriving Together Atlanta serves as a model of how cross-sector partnerships can address the multifaceted issues affecting communities today.
