So, Why do I love green spaces?
Because it’s a place for people to come together and have community.
Our Atlanta organizations can do the same thing, sometimes using our green spaces and sometimes using other avenues.
The Atlanta BeltLine has covered it all. They are allowing community development through parks and green spaces, transit, and art- that’s why I am so in love. But there are many other organizations that are developing their events with our Atlanta Green Spaces. The secret hippie maybe coming out, but I love you #Trees Atlanta.
This last weekend I found my way to a great event hosted by Wonderroot and GlowATL: WonderGlo
Wonderglo at The W
The event was held at the W. Tickets supported the educational and artistic community in our city. Dinner was set on hand built wood tables. Artist and community enthusiast came together to party. Music by Christ, Lord, Acollective, gloATL, Fahamu Pecou and Atlas Sound. I had the pleasure of meeting amazing people.
Obviously, Chris Appleton, Executive D of WonderRoot caught my attention; he has done so much for development in Atlanta. And I heard WonderRoot’s community garden is about to get a facelift. Yay for Green spaces!
Also, met some other community enthusiast. Shout out to Stu, with Daily Freshness!
And I can’t decline the opportunity to introduce to you Alexander Acosta! Soul Food Cypher is an upcoming org that is changing the way we view hip hop. Catch em at WonderRoot 2nd and 4th Sundays.
WonderRoot uses art and community to inspire social change. Chris Appleton and the rest of the team give us the opportunity to enjoy each other, art, and our community. So thank-you. And I look forward to watching you continue to grow- both in action and brand.
And welcome to the new Creative Director for WonderRoot, Maggie Ginestra.
