About the Summit
New Orleans is a city of Neighborhoods. The annual Neighborhood Summit celebrates the strength, history, and diversity of our city's neighborhoods, bringing together community leaders, non-profit agencies, and city government. First held in 2012, the annual summit continues to grow each year.

At the day-long summit, neighborhood leaders and residents share information across communities, develop new skills to bring home, and build relationships old and new. See workshop topics below.
