Neighborhood Network Weaves A Fine Multi-Cultural Robe
Unique neighborhoods, music, and food - all as diverse as day and night - are all part of what makes
New Orleans what it is. Like some rare fabric woven into a Joseph-like robe to be worn on stage for
a forever-curious nation, the neighborhoods of New Orleans carry virtues true to every close-knit
society. They are the threads needed to recreate a very great city.
Part of that job lies with the Neighborhood Partnership Network (NPN), which since 2006 has served
as a kind of seamstress working to complete an outfit for a big event, grasping the post-Katrina atmos-
phere of hopelessness, giving residents a vision or hope of what could and should be done in any
ravaged city in the world.
Connecting with over 50 New Orleans neighborhood associations, a print and online newsletter called
"The Trumpet", monthly forums, workshops, & training for neighborhood activists and leaders, the
NPN brings together everyday citizens, volunteers, organizations, business people, & government for
collaboration and community empowerment.
The NPN has held annual "Trumpet Awards" and "Toast To New Orleans Neighborhoods"
ceremonies to honor several community citizens, businesses, &organizations. and also hosted a "Festival of Neighborhoods", where
residents are encouraged to showcase their community contributions and share information, featuring music, dozens of
neighborhood and charitable organizations, food booths, & kiddie activities.
