WonderRoot is an arts organization that works to improve the cultural and social landscape of Atlanta through creative initiatives and community partnerships.


We believe that social change is both a values system and a path of action: the belief that society isn't perfect and the understanding that we have the power to do something about it. We affect change through the arts - a powerful vehicle for attracting attention, creating dialogue and changing perceptions.


WonderRoot is an Atlanta-based nonprofit arts and service organization with a mission to unite artists and community to inspire positive social change.



We imagine an Atlanta with an aware and mobilized public. An Atlanta where place matters and change happens through an equitable cultural ecosystem and by the responsible sharing of resources. This will happen through an integration of the arts into active forms of city and community building where people of social difference have the agency to move and think freely for themselves and for others.



The anchor of our organization is our Arts Center - a full-service facility that supports artists, offers public programming and brings diverse voices together to envision and activate a stronger Atlanta.

Marking the next phase of WonderRoot’s development, the WonderRoot Center for Arts & Social Change will be a 54,000 square foot, 8-acre campus for artists and community located in Reynoldstown at the heart of the east Atlanta neighborhoods.

The Center will house:

  • 25,000 square feet of private studio space for artists; nonprofit organizations and small creative businesses,
  • a visual arts gallery,
  • performance venue for theater, dance and film,
  • a cafe open to the public,
  • educational spaces,
  • and a series of production facilities for artists, including a recording studio, printmaking studio, darkroom, ceramics studio, digital media lab, and dance rehearsal studio.

The following are the principle values of WonderRoot. These values define our culture, and we strive to incorporate them in all of our activities.


Accountability and Transparency

We function in a transparent manner and hold ourselves accountable to the communities, organizations, and people we work with along with the public at large.


Affordability and Accessibility

We are dedicated to providing creative programming that is affordable and accessible to all.


Collaboration and Responsiveness

We work collaboratively and responsively with a broad spectrum of local organizations, people, and institutions to foster a culture of support and coalition building and to realize our projects and programs in an egalitarian manner.

We believe that a vibrant arts community contributes to economic vitality and to quality of life. We are dedicated to serving as a leading arts institution in Atlanta. As such, we are committed to advocating for the importance/value of the arts to the economy and quality of life in Metro Atlanta and Georgia.



We are committed to having a diverse staff, board, arts center, and stakeholder network. Positive change happens when a multitude of voices are in dialogue at an open table.


For the Individual

We believe art-making is integral to self-actualization and support individuals in nourishing their creative passions and yearnings as they seek to learn more about themselves and their place in society.


For the Community

We are committed to engaging with and validating our local community’s history and people while helping build a more just society through the arts.


Social Change and the Arts

We support creative initiatives that deal with critical socio-cultural issues to foreground these issues, ignite conversation and aid in the making of a more just and equitable society.


Stewardship of Resources & The Environment

We are committed to being good stewards of our financial resources. We will abide by the highest standards of fiscal integrity in our solicitation of funds, use of funds, our accounting practices, board oversight of finances, and our avoidance of conflicts of interest. Additionally, we are dedicated to environmental stewardship, including in how we design and operate our facilities.
