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 ‘Playdate 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 ‘Playdate 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 photos from our Work-In-Progress screening and pilot ‘Playdate Experience’© at Reel Sisters 20th Anniversary Pre-Festival at Kumble Theater in Brooklyn, NY on Wednesday, September 27, 2017. This intergenerational evening was filled with fun, storytelling, and fellowship! Let your network and community be next!
