Bringing public arts into public/affordable housing
Our Public Arts in Public/Affordable Housing (PAPAH) Initiative is a commitment and investment from Midtown Villages to foster a creative environment among low-income children and families, resulting in better school performance, higher quality of life and the ability to envision and achieve a better future
In practical terms, it's students creating and exhibiting, exploring college and careers options with local artists and teachers. It's stepping outside an apartment to an uplifting environment you'd normally see in high-end communities.
The collection of art in the Midtown Villages community center and campuses is called "Unity in Community: Celebrating the Rich Palette of Colors That is Us," casting a diverse and unique vision of Northeast Georgia as told by artists with roots or ties to our area.
