Congratulations, Bobbie and Dianne!

Georgia WAND joins the ArtsXchange in celebrating Bobbie Paul, former Georgia WAND executive director, and Dianne Mathiowetz, long-time local activist, as two of four awardees of the first annual Ebon Dooley Arts and Justice Awards. The event is entitled Revival! and is named for ArtsXchange founder Ebon Dooley, an incredible human being. We congratulate award honorees and uplift their contributions: shelia turner of Sistagraphy and Tasnim Mosabber of Raksha. Bobbie is receiving the Bridge Builder Award, and Dianne Mathiowetz, the Social Justice Champion Award. Bobbie led Georgia WAND for many years, launching it statewide and committing to diversity and inclusion. Dianne is a longtime supporter of Georgia WAND and many other local organizations. She was also the recipient of Georgia WAND’s Mother’s Day for Peace Peace and Justice Award in 2014.
Attendees will enjoy getting to chat with Honorary Hosts, such as Former Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin, Activist Attorney Mawuli Davis, Reverend Dr. C. T. Vivian, Fulton County Commissioner Marvin Arrington, Jr., author/playwright Pearl Cleage, and members of Ebon Dooley’s family as strong supporters of the ArtsXchange. What an important moment!
