Hailing from Buckhead and West End, Bem Joiner launched Atlanta Influences Everything after a revelation.
Atlanta had created an ecosystem welcoming big global brands and corporations. They flocked to the city’s creatives and business leaders for pieces of the culture, but didn’t always consider Atlanta a “top-tier market.” Atlanta Influences Everything became a unifying rally cry of “for us, by us,” bringing attention to Atlanta’s influence on audiences.
Although its influence runs far and deep, Joiner notes there’s still work to be done. Join upcoming food drives hosted by AIE and visit the Center for Civic Innovation for more resources.
