Community Partnerships and Civic Engagement

Drawing from our Core Values and Methodologies, the High Museum of Art’s Education department builds strategic relationships with communities across Atlanta. Our goal is to steward our resources to position the High as a thought partner and community asset. This work includes engaging with individuals—artists, educators, activists, spiritual and civic leaders—and with community-engaged organizations, both for profit and nonprofit. We develop interactive programs that connect voices, perspectives, and themes in our collections and exhibitions with the needs and interests of our stakeholders, community partners, and Atlantans broadly.   

In addition to these more visible modes of community outreach, the High incorporates guidance and feedback from community members across our operations, with the goal of creating a more inclusive, welcoming, and accessible museum for everyone in Atlanta.
