“Scattering Dreams” welcomed artists whose artworks addressed global immigration and refugee crisis. Every day, we are bombarded with news stories and images from around the world of immigration, citizenship, asylum seekers, refugees, detention and deportation. There are over 43 million refugees in the world today, the largest number in history. In Georgia, ten percent of the state’s population was born in another country, while 1 in 13 Georgians is a native-born U.S. citizen with at least one immigrant parent.
How can we, as artists, create and present artwork that sparks critical thinking, empowers alternative narratives, and inspires ourselves and our communities to be more aware and compassionate to the plight of people – often our neighbors - caught in these political and environmental crises?
