Civic Innovation Fellow 2016-2017 // Civic Innovation Resident 2018
Re:imagine/ATL’s mission is to equip the next generation of storytellers.
re:imagine/ATL connects youth with resources and mentors to amplify their voices in media. Through in-school and mobile programming, re:imagine provides youth with the opportunity to explore film, music, podcasting, and other forms of digital expression, providing training and mentorship. Re:imagine also brings teenagers from diverse backgrounds together to break down mentalities of privilege and create equality among teenagers. The organization has served over 3,000 youth from over 30 schools across Metro Atlanta in creating over 100 digital assets including music videos, public service announcements, documentaries, songs, and podcasts.
Atlanta native, Susanna Spiccia, founded re:imagine/ATL in 2014 with the hope of empowering kids and dismantling mindsets of privilege by bringing kids of the same age from diverse backgrounds together around the common asset of creativity. Spiccia attended Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville where she also started an afterschool mentorship program while in college.
