HELLO NEIGHBOR, SAV creates community building events in effort to reduce cultural tensions and divisiveness
to positively impact public safety, health and equitable outcomes for everyone.
HOW IT WORKS:
We produce free, diverse, all-inclusive community-based events in effort to create intersection between people, community groups, neighborhoods, and organizations.
Hello Neighbor was created as an Arts Organization to use art & events as a catalyst for positive community engagement. These events are created with the purpose of placing the onus of good community relations on each of us by providing platforms that encourage ways for us to engage with all our neighbors citywide. Although everyone is encouraged to participate, a special invitation is extended to groups that promote social, political, and economic equality.
