The New Neighbors Toolkit – Intentional Integration Workshop

July 24, 2010

Turning Film into Action

Citizens for Civic Renewal (CCR) and Torrice Productions followed up on the success of the Watch Parties held around The New Metropolis films broadcast by local PBS affiliate CET in November 2009 with a unique workshop to help urban and suburban communities build more vibrant integrated neighborhoods in the region.

The New Neighbors Toolkit – Intentional Integration Workshop provided community members with realistic strategies to revitalize their communities though the integration model featured in the film "The New Neighbors."

With support from the Greater Cincinnati Foundation, this workshop helped local communities maintain and revamp their current approaches to integration while also helping those who were new to the approach. The neighborhoods represented at the workshop included Price Hill, Kennedy Heights, and the communities in the Winton Woods School District (Forest Park, Green Hills, and Springfield Township).

The workshop was led by Barbara Heisler, a nationally known integration consultant. The former director of the Fund for an Open Society, Ms. Heisler has worked with dozens of communities to develop effective strategies towards achieving intentional integration. Watch video excerpts from the workshop on the sidebar to the right.
