Event description

Description

Plywood People is hosting our first Black Box Session of the year. Black Box Sessions are intimate gatherings where we explore a topic as a community. This Session’s topic is DIGNITY and has been shaped around a quotation by Pope John Paul II. He said, "Nobody is so poor that he has nothing to give, and nobody is so rich that he has nothing to receive." We will explore what it means that each person has value and unique gifts to offer to the building of community. We are all needed to make better happen.

This is the power of DIGNITY.

Our Presenters and Performers are:

Ryan Gravel, Urban Planner, Author and Creator of the Atlanta Beltline. Ryan is the author of "Where We Want to Live: Reclaiming Infrastructure for a New Generation of Cities." During this session, he will share on dignity in city planning and design, especially as it relates to the city of Atlanta and his history with the Atlanta Beltline.

Sarah Buchanan, Co-Founder and Executive Director of The Kula Project. In her work with Rwandan coffee farmers, Sarah has captured the art of storytelling. She will share how she communicates these stories with the community's dignity in mind.

Iyabo Onipede, Leadership Development Coach. Coach Iyabo's work focuses on the soul of leadership. During this session, she will share her personal story of coming into her vocation, helping us all to realize that dignity exists in the most unlikely places.

Sean Grant, Spoken Word Artist and Founder of Trackstarz Media. Sean is an Atlanta-based artist and entrepreneur. We are excited for him to share his poetry as a part of this Black Box Session.

Desserts and Beverages will be provided.
