Mission and Vision

Who We Are

Emergent Savannah is a non-partisan organization that focuses on the cultural evolution of Savannah through education  and community. Through grassroots organizing, information workshops, participatory research and cultural work, we create spaces for people vested in collective action to shape the future of Savannah.


Emergent Savannah is a growing social and cultural organization encompassed of people who believe that Savannah is capable of evolving into a more intentional community, where we can shine a light on the power citizens have to shape the future, while continuing to honor the past.

We are dedicated to being with people and advocating for the local Savannah community through thoughtful conversation and personal action. We aim to strengthen connections and creativity in our community through thoughtful and unexpected ways.



Our Vision is simple. Culture. Community. Conversation.


Emergent Savannah was founded on the floor of a studio apartment in 2015. Through a series of conversations, frustrated citizens decided there had to be a better way of being in community and formed what is now Emergent Savannah. Through conversation, art and community, Emergent Savannah is local activism with heart and works to shine a light on the powerful people of Savannah.
