Land Acknowledgement

QuiltCon acknowledges that our event will be held on the ancestral homelands stolen from Indigenous peoples, including the Muscogee people, their descendants who live currently, and future generations to come. We acknowledge the sovereignty of the Muscogee Nation, the fourth largest tribe in the U.S., and seek to honor the Muscogee Nation and other Indigenous caretakers of this land. We also acknowledge the sustained oppression, land dispossession, and involuntary removals of the Muscogee peoples.

QuiltCon is dedicated to protecting and honoring the history of these people and places.

About Atlanta

Atlanta welcomes more than 1 million international visitors each year. Seventy-one countries have representation in Atlanta through a consulate or trade office, giving it a diverse economy. From arts and culture to music and cuisine, the city is full of multi-cultural opportunities for everyone.

Atlanta sits at the intersection of Southern charm, creativity, and sophistication. It is easy to fall in love with this beautiful city – its world-class attractions, award-winning dining, and hidden wonders – and be inspired by the city’s endless possibilities.

Atlanta’s arts and culture scenes are some of the most vibrant in the U.S. The Woodruff Arts Center, the country’s third-largest arts campus, comprises the High Museum of Art, the Alliance Theater, and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, draws more than one million visitors annually. Atlanta’s arts scene spreads well beyond the city’s world-class venues as a new wave of visual art installations and street murals have rolled in, adorning parks, walls, tunnels, and walkways with color and jumpstarting Atlanta’s independent artist’s scene. The city’s roots also dig deep into its cultural past with historic events including Civil War battles, the birth of the civil rights movement, and the Centennial Olympic Games.
