We Impact ATL: Intro Series

We stand out as creative individuals. We stand together in activism. We overlap passions and skill sets. Every day we impact ATL. We beat the rhythmic heart of social change. We carry the legacy of the civil rights movement. We are the creative souls of Atlanta.

WE IMPACT ATL is a call to our entire community to become more sustainable in our outputs, more responsible to our society, more mindful in our communications, more inclusive in our processes, and more impactful in our work. This program is designed to bring the cultures of art, design, and activism together to strengthen the work we already do for a city we love.

This program is facilitated by impact strategist, Lennie Gray Mowris, to make the combined practices of sustainability, art philanthropy, equity-centered design, and civic engagement accessible for the larger ATL creative community on concerns relevant to our city. This program is fiscally sponsored for a tax-deductible 501(c)3 status by C4 Atlanta, and is hosted in partnership with GENERATOR ATL.
