Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
WonderRoot is an Atlanta-based 501(c)(3) non-profit arts organization committed to uniting artists and community to inspire positive social change.
WonderRoot was founded in 2004 in response to Atlanta's need for an organization that unites artists and community advocacy. We believe that artists have the potential to change the world. Musicians, photographers, writers, filmmakers, and artists of all other mediums have the ability to communicate globally moving freely through the barriers of language and geographical restraints. In a society that receives much of its information through the media, the most effective way to implement positive change is through using media resources. We are artists giving back to the community that has done so much to inspire us.
Our facilities include a darkroom, digital media lab, gallery space, conference room, performance space, ceramic studio, recording studio, zine library, community garden, and workshops.
WonderRoot is an excellent arts advocacy organization. Complete with a recording studio, photography studio and ceramics studio, as well as a performance space and media lab, WonderRoot provides a wealthy of opportunities for city-wide artists and the neighborhood. The environment is inspiring and cool. At the moment, I'm listening to a band warm up downstairs; last week, I was inspired to write poetry. I'd recommend volunteering here!
