Learning and Impact

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 community-engaged organizations, both for profit and non-profit. 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.


We commit to leveraging art’s power to engage essential topics for our city, and aspire to strengthen self-awareness, frame productive public discussions, and cultivate inquiry and empathy across our society.
