WELCOME TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD!
“The Neighborhood Project”
WHAT WE DO
“The Neighborhood Project” is dedicated to creating healthier communities by encouraging more meaningful conversations.
WHY WE DO IT
One of our core values is to be of service. Our hope is that these neighborhood projects will grow, uniting communities around the country in the service of something greater.
WHO WE ARE
The Neighborhood Project is a division of The Nantucket Project, a private company that produces an annual event on Nantucket and around the country featuring live talks, music and performance art by curious people doing meaningful work. Afterward, the TNP Lab makes short films based on the freshest and most challenging ideas from our stage.
WHY WE CHARGE
Making a profit enables us to stay in business and develop our films, which support and amplify the message of speakers and artists who would not normally reach such a broad audience. The fee also helps offset the cost of the neighborhood pass program.
THE NEIGHBORHOOD PASS PROGRAM
The TNP Neighborhood Pass gives communities everywhere the opportunity to participate in the neighborhood project. the pass includes full neighborhood project memberships for hosts and all attendees.”

“R! Neighborhood” - is facilitated by The Keepers (of the Commons) a collaborating organization of The Neighborhood Project.
The Keepers of the Commons is creating a new way to stimulate neighborhoods by identifying and connecting often overlooked community leaders to well-established policy and ideas events. We are cultivating local talent to diversify the pipeline by thinking differently about the traditional leadership development paradigm.

R! Neighborhood is a (REACH!) program that aims to take the themes, messages, or inspiration from the neighborhood project and put it into practice in a meaningful way; whether it's through a personal effort and/or an organizational project.
“R! Neighborhood” Call To Action:
*Taking the conversations to the masses. Constructive and productive content that is relevant at addressing issues we all care about through the R!eal Talk Podcast, REACH! On-Line Show, in our live events, classrooms discussions, presentations and assemblies.
*Creating skits, short plays, original music, dance routines, and artistic works (such as collages, paintings, drawings, murals) that will help provide another platform for development and can be shared with others to help them work through challenges and/or find encouragement through artistic works.
*Collaborating with other organizations that focus on bringing people together to appreciate our differences and celebrate what unifies us.
*Putting on an Annual “Neighborhood” Block Party that will bring all the neighborhood project chapters together and to kick off the new season and initiatives the neighborhood project ignited after The Nantucket Project event in September.
*Providing an over all Safe Space/Safe Place for people to gather and create a network to share, support, and connect.
