About the City's Organizers

  • 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.

  • Siana Altiise

    I am a multi-disciplinary artist, with a focus on the neurological phenomena called Synesthesia (I have fortunately been living with this condition since birth). My artistic goal is to replicate Synesthesia's multi-sensory responses across varying professions, practices and modes of learning.
