Arts advocate/administrator Ash Nash has made a career of challenging systems and demanding systemic change through Atlanta’s arts industry in ways that directly, socially and economically impact underserved artists and communities. Nash, with Carlton Mackey and Edward Queen, developed a course examining film and other art-based mediums to explore the function of media in social change movements. Students moved between the classroom and working in creative teams to develop a short documentary for Atlanta non-profit, Gangstas to Growers.
