Funding Period: 2 years and 4 months

Southside is a stable, African-American-majority neighborhood in Macon, GA. Given that the median age is 71, this neighborhood  will increasingly face both development pressures and demographic changes. To organize and focus the community to play an active role in the coming changes, local visual artists will repurpose vacant lots to create a community campus that combines arts, culture, education, and history. The campus will also provide new food access for the community.

This project is being spear headed by a young entreprenuer, Danny Glover, who grew up in the neighborhood and has built partnerships with neighbors, Macon’s land banking authority, and several local nonprofits.
