Journey to the Beloved Community 

“Journey to the Beloved Community” was a two year “social arts” collaboration between the Chatham Savannah Citizen Advocacy Office and the Telfair Museum in Savannah, Georgia.  These artifacts make visible the arts of social change; the creative work of doing justice by those who use creativity and the arts to engage people in strengthening right relationships.
