Artist and community organizer Allie Bashuk is a woman on a mission, and she’s cultivated a quirky, comfortable style that allows her to move and get things done. Whether Bashuk is working to empower women and nonbinary individuals through her nonprofit, Dream Warriors Foundation; producing large-scale event installations (like the MailChimp Pride float) as codirector of Brutal Studio; or bringing the city’s artists together as a director at the Goat Farm Arts Center, this creative powerhouse is helping foster culture and community in Atlanta.
