Art on the Atlanta BeltLine Experience: Walk with Amal

Join us for an Art on the Atlanta BeltLine Experience
A global symbol of compassion and human rights, Little Amal is a 12-foot puppet of a 10-year-old Syrian refugee who has spent the past two years traveling over 6,000 miles to 15 countries. Her journeys are festivals of art and hope that aim to celebrate the stories of refugees, immigrants, and displaced people, along with communities that welcome them.
As part of her 2023 United States journey, Amal will travel along the Atlanta BeltLine Eastside Trail, where she'll join the Krewe of Grateful Gluttons, Liquid Sky, and Mausiki Scales & the Common Ground Collective.
Because her visit coincides with the 2,000-mile monarch butterfly migration, Amal will be welcomed by 100 illuminated monarch butterfly puppets. She will also encounter a number of surprises along the walk, including live music and a dance performance.

Local Filmmaker Releases Documentary - McPHERSON

NPU-S is proud to announce McPHERSON - a documentary on the Union general that our own Fort McPherson is named after. This documentary was created by our own local filmmaker and artist Althea Brown, who created the Ft. Mac Oral History project.

It's short - only 18 minutes - so pop some popcorn and watch for free on Vimeo!

Ms. Brown is asking viewers to answer a short survey after watching the film.

This project was sponsored by the City of Atlanta.
