To harness the power of storytelling to amplify underheard voices, and create spaces of empathy, vulnerability, and compassion in order build a more connected and just city.
The Vision of AtlantaSpeaks! :
To create pockets of radical hospitality, empathy, vulnerability, trust, and compassion to support Creative Circles throughout our city.
To explore, discover, and distill the voice of the Circle down to a story that can be shared through an artistic medium.
To honor the process of making this new piece of art in a way that honors, challenges, and lifts up each participant.
To share this piece of art with a wider community, crushing any and all barriers to accessibility in a way that promotes strengthening community, social discourse, policy change, and neighborliness
To build a stronger culture of accountability, leadership, creative problem solving, teamwork, and empathy.
