AubreyTinglerSGWS graduate, Aubrey Tingler, is one of 9-12 students across all of Emory University chosen to work with a local Atlanta artist to create an art installation focused on prominent social issues. She was chosen via competitive application to be a participant in Emory University’s Art and Social Engagement Project, whose purpose according to the Emory Center for Ethics is, “to engage the Emory University student body with Atlanta non-profits as co-creators of thought-provoking collaborative art projects designed to address important social issues in Atlanta based on proposals by Artist Facilitators.”

Aubrey was chosen by a panel consisting of the Director of the Ethics & the Arts Program, Carlton Mackey, the Director of the Ethics & Servant Leadership Program, Dr. Edward Queen, and a representative of (sponsor) Southwest Airlines. In addition to creating an art project about a pressing social issue in Atlanta, Aubrey will work with the other chosen participants to create a white paper, “describing the impact of the social issues their projects seek to address on the Atlanta community, and the ways in which their projects address said issues.”

Congratulations, Aubrey!
