Local news by Atlanta, with Atlanta.

We’re telling unforgettable stories about our region, one neighborhood at a time. And we’re doing it together.

About Us

Canopy Atlanta is a local digital publication launching fall 2020 that will empower metro Atlantans to tell their own community’s stories.

We’ll train and involve residents in the process of journalism, helping all Atlantans to access information about the issues that matter to them most.

Each Canopy Atlanta issue will focus on a different neighborhood in metro Atlanta. Our first issue will focus on West End. See more about our team here.

How it works


We’ll choose stories—with neighborhood residents—and provide multiple avenues for input.


To tell those stories, we won’t only pay journalists: We’ll pay and train residents to tell their community’s stories through words, photos, sound, and more.


When we release each issue, we won’t hit publish and leave. We’ll present those stories in and with communities through live events.

Be in the know

Through our newsletter, you’ll get unique stories about metro Atlanta communities, as well as an inside look at how journalism gets done.
