LITTLE SALLIE WALKER strives to build partnerships with individuals and non-profit organizations whose goals and objectives connect with the themes and topics in the documentary.  As part of our community engagement efforts, we are organizing the LITTLE SALLIE WALKER Play Date Experience© with communities around the US. Partnerships with the LITTLE SALLIE WALKER team might include showing an updated teaser or the entire film once it is finished along with a panel and Play Date Experience© in your community. In conjunction with the documentary, we believe this experience should highlight the importance of creativity, joy, self-expression, fun, empowerment, and healing.   If you or your organization want to learn more and become a partner, please contact us.

See the Photo Galleries for the LITTLE SALLIE WALKER Play Date Experience© events in Brooklyn and Harlem, NY funded by the New York Women’s Foundation in 2019. These intergenerational events included a short work-in-progress sample of the film, games, storytelling, and fellowship! Let your network and community be next!
