“Artists at Work” is a program for artists focused on climate resilience here in the Chattanooga area.

ArtsBuild serves as the program’s culture hub in the Thrive Region across 16 counties here in Southeast Tennessee, Northwest Georgia and Northeast Alabama - in partnership with the Lyndhurst Foundation and THE OFFICE performing arts + film, an independent curator and production company based in New York and London.

One Chattanooga artist in the program is 2$0N The Prince, who will be collaborating with The Trust for Public Land on a long-term community engagement art project.

I spoke with him - and Brianna Jones, administrative fellow for Artists at Work - and Daniela Paz Petersen, senior adviser in community strategies at The Trust for Public Land.
