Maggie Benoit’s objective is to produce enriching experiences that bolster the arts alongside entrepreneurial efforts in Atlanta. Her focus is to strengthen a community driven network, a conversation, a connection to resources and a place for beings to express constructively. This way the individual and community grow by staying curious, asking questions, creating solutions, as well as learning constructs of both personal and social space. The question arises, “how does one define the ability to connect the intimately personal to another tangibly?” Such an expression means finding love for self, love for another, love for something that holds meaning. Sharing said experience defines a landscape of varied media through intentional integration of work and life.
Parks Miller is a musician, music historian, artist, and lighting technician living in Atlanta. He has been working in lighting and production for eight years in a variety of settings, ranging from festival-size concerts to dance performances and art galleries, including the ACAC’s own Art Party. He has helped on numerous occasions with Atlanta’s budding DIY venue, the Bakery. He is a co-founder of the Atlanta-Savannah-based band, DIP, and a member of Podcast 99, the foremost chronicle of the disastrous Woodstock ’99 music festival. His work with lighting has led to meditations on the relationship between color and emotion.
