Southwest Airlines Art & Social Engagement Project

Art and Social Engagement Project Unveiling

The 2019 Southwest Airlines Art and Social Engagement Projects were produced by Emory students alongside Atlanta artists Natrice MillerJessica CaldasEbony Blanding, and Khalimah Gaston. Each artist/undergraduate grouping collaborated with a local nonprofit: New American Pathways, CARE, Emory Sustainability Initiative, and WonderRoot, respectively.

The projects are produced by the students in the Southwest Airlines Art and Social Engagement Project’s “Film, Media, and the Art of Social Change course, offered by the Film and Media Studies Department and Visual Arts in conjunction with Atlanta-area artists.  Taught by Ethics & the Arts Program director Carlton Mackey and Ethics and Servant Leadership (EASL) Program director Dr. Edward Queen, the project and course give Emory University students an opportunity to work directly with Atlanta artists and non-profits to learn about ethically engaged art and improve the city around them.
