About the City's Organizers

  • Kevin Ward

    Hailing from the Buckeye State and a wanderer at heart (add Japan, Haiti, Mexico and Honduras to the list of places traveled) I find myself here in ATL having recently moved from San Francisco. Now, I find I am providing some of the best art and independent film for the masses here in the South. I used to assist and help organize the Columbus, OH Pk Night and I'm looking forward to continuing the fun here in ATL!

  • Amanda Plumb

    I love Atlanta and I'm happy to support creative projects that bring people together -- like Pecha Kucha. And 5 years running StoryCorps Atlanta has taught me a lot about what makes a good story. I'm also a dedicated chicken mommy and I take my southern hospitality duties rather seriously.
