WHAT IS "EMBRACING DIFFERENCES"
Embracing Differences (ED) is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization.  It is a diverse group of art patrons and community advocates, dedicated to presenting a dynamic, single theme public art exhibit to encourage frank dialogue between
people of differing faiths, orientations, races and national origins about our differences as well as our shared values. 

OUR MISSION: 
To use art to educate and promote a community where all people share a mutual respect for others without prejudice,
hate or fear. 

OUR GOAL: 
To help end disharmony, discrimination and prejudice by allowing students' artistic expression to heal the differences
that divide us.

OUR FOUNDING PROGRAM:

2010 – 2011 - students from around Metro Atlanta banded together to promote their convictions about tolerance and acceptance – and began a visual dialog to help end the many ways that stereotypes, fear and prejudice paint ugly misconceptions of those who are different than we.
