The Creatives Project (TCP) is pleased to announce the inaugural fundraiser for its outreach initiative, The Creative Community Housing Project (CCHP). A non-profit organization, CCHP will provide housing and financial support to creatives, while pioneering community and social responsibility, and encouraging creativity and growth through the arts and arts education.
The February 4th benefit, entitled "JUNG at HeART" will be the first of many to support CCHP's goals. Featuring the collaboration of revered artists Fahamu Pecou and Bethany Marchman as photographed by Neda Abghari, "JUNG at HeART", a play on the phrase "young at heart," infuses the three artists' exploration of psychological and sociological conditioning as conveyed in the research and writings of psychoanalyst Carl G. Jung.
Marchman's beautiful exploration of the internal child as an adult Jungian archetype compliments and contrasts Pecou's witty critique of adult males: the external child trapped in a second childhood. Using Neda Abghari's camera as a bridge, Bethany Marchman and Fahamu Pecou both interpret and examine various aspects of Jungian Theory. The three artists, through varied approaches and points of view, meet at a crossroads of shared sentiments and bring with them a host of loyal and diverse family, friends and fans.
This exhibition marks the first collaborative effort by these three dynamic and respected artists. Each has developed solid individual reputations through their craft. Their union represents an unprecedented fusion of Atlanta's art community and truly reflects how diverse groups can come together to expand boundaries as well as minds.
Begun in Atlanta as a photo-documentary project, The Creatives Project (TCP) is an ongoing series of photographic portraits of artists, musicians, DJ’s and others that seeks to provide insights into the lives and lifestyles of creative individuals. TCP will continue to use its documentary series to bridge gaps of creative community, introduce artists to new audiences, support the community through arts based outreach, and inform the public about the mission and goals of CCHP.

so we received a message a little while ago about bands and press/"lack there of" in atlanta... here is how we feel about it:
"i hear ya babe... i actually like their music, i like thier energy...
i do, however, agree that there is much talent coming from atlanta that has yet to be heard or seen by the rest of the world...and that is what sucks!
atlanta has long been overlooked and "underheard" which is exactly why the documentary was started... although the ***** may not please the tastes of some atlantans, i think its great that they are recieving press. it brings more attention to our overlooked city... the more opportunities there are for atlanta's creatives to make press, the more opportunities there are for other bands and artists to be discovered. we wanna create a space (www.atlantacreatives.org) where people outside of atlanta can look into all the genres of creativity atlanta has to offer... so rich in sound and visuals.
if we cant support our own talent... we can't expect others to
i personally don't have to "love" every band or every artist i support, but i do have to respect their love, passion, and commitment to their craft."
you guys(we) should shamelessly promote/support each other.
if you are a band or an artist being interviewed, for god's sake, drop ATL names!!! figure out who your favorite locals are and tell the world.
ATLANTA ATLANTA ATLANTA... the more people hear it, the more piqued their interest will become... perfect example of where this shameless self promotion has worked: our hip-hop community! bad asses are on the map. now its time for the rest of atlanta to take over... you are way too talented not to! what are you waiting for?
