Ethics & the Arts

The Ethics & the Arts Program at Emory encourages ethical discourse and debate through and about the arts, and it partners with signature arts organizations to demonstrate the way art challenges our perspectives. The production of art, its role in public conversation, its preservation, and its presentation all provoke us to confront ethical challenges, sometimes in startling new ways. We are committed to inspiring innovative thought by using creative expression to elevate moral discourse. Our aim is to bring together communities while prompting ethical dialogue among students, artists, scholars, and the general public.
