Serenbe Fellows

Our Fellows program brings together cultural and environmental thought leaders and eminent scholars for short term residencies at Serenbe.

Serenbe Fellows brings preeminent thought leaders, respected scholars and nationally recognized artists to Serenbe to discourse with Serenbe residents, visitors and the greater Atlanta community on timely topics. Topics range from responsible community development to the impact of the arts on a community's quality of life. Our Fellows program also promotes an ongoing dialogue about what a great life in Serenbe and beyond can look like, providing guidance on how we sustain our work in the future.
