Macon, GA

Middle Georgia State University (MGA) will host the annual UNITY@MGA during the week of November 26- 29, 2018, highlighting an interactive social dialogue through the creation of a public art installation on the Macon campus this year.

UNITY Week, celebrated by colleges and universities throughout the nation, is designed to create a dialogue on matters of diversity, inclusivity and solidarity. UNITY@MGA is being planned by the Office of Diversity, Inclusion, & Equity, the Office of Experiential Learning, and MGA students.

From 9:00 am 3:00 pm each day Monday, Nov. 26, through Thursday, Nov. 29, students, faculty, staff, alumni and interested community members can participate at MGA’s Macon Campus Quad near the library to create a public art installation. Participants will tie colorful yarn to the posts that reflect their personal identifiers. The individual strands of yarn will intertwine with the yarn of others to create a web of connectedness. MGA’s faculty, staff, students, alumni, and the community will craft these larger-than-life structures to reflect our uniqueness and strengthen our ties to each other.

Students who participate may also be eligible for Experiential Learning credit.

The installation will remain in place through the current semester’s final exams and graduation.

For more information, contact Jenia Bacote, Director of Diversity, Inclusion, & Equity/Title IX Coordinator at 478.471.3627 or jenia.bacote@mga.edu, or Chris Tsavatewa, Director of Experiential Learning 478.471.2088 or chris.tsavatewa@mga.edu.
