The history of Plywood Presents is full of inspirational talks, electric connections and world-changing catalysts for good. And we celebrate our history but know it’s time for something new.

This year’s Plywood Presents has been entirely reimagined.

Remixed, redesigned, reshaped, rethought.

We sat with you, called you, and asked you what you needed. Because well, Plywood Presents only exists to serve you.

You said you wanted more time for community.

We hear you.

You said you wanted less time sitting.

We got you.

You said you wanted to be a part of something bigger than yourself.
We say, tell us more. We’re listening.

SO...

2019 marks the 10th year of Plywood Presents, and we bring you


ATL IDEAS: A Festival of All Things Good!

A 3-day festival in celebration of GOOD work in Atlanta and across the globe.


Imagine.


Three days of goodness, three days of impact,
and three days of remembering that better is possible.

Lee + White

1020 White Street SW / Atlanta GA / 30310

→ The space is located between the West End BeltLine and Rose Circle Park off of the intersection of Lee St. SW and White St. SW.

Originally built in the 1950’s, Lee + White is joining the long-standing history of Atlanta’s West End.

These warehouses once neighbored a centralized rail line that was essential to the growth and impact of the West End.

Our vision for the future of this space is to gather Atlanta’s best annually, to sustain and uphold the rich history of the West End, while supporting the local community and connecting surrounding neighborhoods.

who-01.png

Changemakers, dreamers, do-ers.
Budding visionaries, untapped experts, dormant mentors, and would-be world-changers.

Anyone who had an idea and made it a reality, has an idea and doesn’t know where to go with it,
has a billion ideas and has a hankering to talk about it, and loves watching people imagine ideas.

ATL Ideators of past, present, and future.

The future is good.

And it’s even better when we’re working together.
