Mr. Alex Macias

Community Development Manager

Conexión Américas


Bio

Alex oversees the planning, execution and management of Conexión Américas' program "Envision Nolensville Pike" (ENP) which envisions and promotes equitable development in South Nashville (especially along the Nolensville Pike corridor). This program taps into the transformative ability the arts have to civically involve community members in advocating for transportation improvements in the communities along Nolensville Pike (the 3rd most dangerous road in TN) which is known as the International District. Alex also convenes city stake holders that form the ENP Advisory Committee who advocate for policies that are leading to the institutionalization of creative placemaking and equitable development throughout Middle Tennessee. Prior to working at Conexion Americas Alex was a Youth Development Specialist with the Peace Corp in Peru in a rural community of 7,000.
