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.
Lennie Gray Mowris, a magically disgruntled manifestor, is the founder of Lenspeace, an impact strategy & letterpress studio specializing in creating sustainable community and purpose-based brand development. As co-author of the Path to Impact, an impact framework that guides creatives through a five-step process integrating social and environmental sustainability, Lennie uses design thinking facilitation to pivot complex human problems into positive outcomes. When Lennie isn’t manifesting her magic, she’s probably lost in the woods, soaking up sunshine, climbing on things, playing with words & pictures, or foraging for wild food.
