What is a charrette?

A charrette is a creative, intensive workshop where interested parties come together to examine and respond to a project’s planned goals. As we work through the plans for a new exhibition about Atlanta’s Olympic history, holding this type of forum for public feedback will allow us to identify major interest areas and issues within the topic, and move toward the best plan for exhibition development. Come think things through with us!

About the exhibition

The upcoming Atlanta History Center exhibition seeks to reveal the impact of the 1996 Olympic Games on the city and region.

The exhibition intends to review the process of designating Atlanta as an Olympic host city and how that accelerated change at a local and regional level, connecting the city’s ongoing urban transformation with major developments of the last decade of the 20th century and beginning of the 21st.

The exhibition should engage visitors of all ages with stories of urban redevelopment, economic and population changes, cultural impact, city and community politics, and technological innovations. Through artifacts, archival materials, and other interpretive means, the exhibition must examine the successes and challenges of the global platform of the Olympic Games.

We hope that you are able to join us for one of these events!

Sincerely,

Claire Haley
