Despite Atlanta’s reputation as the “Black mecca”, there exists a void in institutional representation of contemporary Black art and culture. ADAMA seeks to uniquely fill this gap by becoming a premiere destination and resource for contemporary art and culture of the African diaspora right here in Atlanta. ADAMA plans on becoming a premiere destination in Atlanta, but is first focused on doing the work to serve the Black community now with existing resources.
Through Culture and Community Design, ADAMA seeks to identify four areas across metro Atlanta where the Black community has resettled after being displaced from more centralized Atlanta neighborhoods. With these areas identified, ADAMA and the CCD team will develop a unique opportunity to directly serve the residents in one of the areas with a goal of supporting a regional sense of belonging, promote economic development, opportunity, and cultural heritage tourism.
The CCD team will focus on defining and planning this project for the selected community with the intent of providing a repeatable process for ADAMA to approach working with other communities in metro Atlanta.
