OCA Celebrates 40 Years Highlighting Atlanta Arts

The Office of Cultural Affairs launched celebration of 40 years in Atlanta with breakfast for regional arts leaders and presentation of a film highlighting the city’s vibrant arts and culture.

Narrated by Mayor Kasim Reed and produced by Turner Broadcasting with support from Atlanta Convention and Visitors Bureau, the film provides a glimpse into the array of artistic experiences available to citizens and visitors across the city. The film captures the diversity of talent and expression that makes Atlanta a progressive community and a thriving metropolis.

The Office of Cultural Affairs (originally The Bureau of Cultural Affairs) was established by Mayor Maynard Jackson in 1974. Mayor Jackson believed that great cities have great art and was committed to Atlanta’s development as such. Over the past 40 years, OCA has served the arts community in a variety of ways that add to the richness of Atlanta’s identity.
