OCA and APS Celebrate 14 Years of the Cultural Experience Project

 

Created 14 years ago with the purpose of providing cultural experiences to Atlanta Public Schools students, from Pre-K to 12th grade, the Cultural Experience Project (CEP) is a unique opportunity that illustrates the meaningful ways public and private entities can come together for a common good.
City government, a local public school district, cultural venues, and corporate and private donors work together to ensure that Atlanta’s youth has access to the City’s arts and cultural offerings.

As the CEP program enters a new academic year, the OCA staff is pleased to welcome Moving in the Spirit to the fold. Among the returning venues are the Michael C. Carlos Museum, which will exhibit the work of renowned Atlanta artist Dr. Fahamu Pecou during this year’s visit, and the Chick-Fil-A Backstage Tour.

Atlanta Botanical Garden, the David J. Sencer CDC Museum, the College Football Hall of Fame, Theatrical Outfit, and the ZuCot Gallery are also among the 28 venues represented in this year’ program.
