Our Commitment

The TransFormation Alliance is dedicated to strengthening the Atlanta region’s cultural landscape by enhancing community equity and accessibility to engage with the arts and various modes of creative expression.

Our Vision

Art, culture, and creative expression are playing a pivotal role in community development by working to catalyze community transformation and stabilize disruption.

What are we working on?

  • Creative Placemaking Committee

    Led by WonderRoot, this committee works to engage communities surrounding MARTA stations with the arts and various modes of creative expression. The committee works in alignment with TransFormation Alliance partners to identify policy opportunities that stimulate the creative sector and also works to provide arts-based initiatives that collect qualitative data from community stakeholders.

  • En Route

    En Route is a community-based public art project that creates meaningful, aesthetically imaginative, text-based murals that explore issues of access, mobility and public transportation.
