Neighborhood organizations across the City are partnering with the Neighborhood and Community Engagement Commission (NCEC) and NCR to host a series of community dialogues about neighborhood organizations in Minneapolis. Each event will include small group discussions to address the following questions:
– What services, opportunities and information should neighborhood organizations provide?
– What are characteristics of an effective neighborhood organization?
– How can neighborhood organizations empower engagement?
These questions were developed by 37 participants at a day-long workshop on the Art of Hosting Conversations that Matter.
The dialogues are a first step in developing recommendations for the Minneapolis City Council on the future work of neighborhood organizations through a process of respectful and inclusive community engagement.
