“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?
