Idea Lab Conversation: CREATE Athens with Erin Barger
What is the role of the arts in Athens community development? Join Erin Barger, project manager of Envision Athens, to learn more about the CREATE Athens action group. CREATE Athens recently produced a report about the impact of arts and culture in Athens in three key areas: economic development, education, and civic engagement.
Barger entered the role of project manager for Envision Athens after serving as a citizen representative on the steering committee for this movement in 2017. Barger brings to this role nearly two decades of community development work, ranging from work in disability supports and advocacy, refugee resettlement, service as a U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer in China, and then nearly a decade of addressing poverty in Athens.
