Tom and Kelly spoke with Neighborhood Project member Nicole Pittman after she'd taken part in a gathering for episode one of The Neighborhood Project. Nicole, who is part of The Cambrian Ave. Project, is also the director for the Center on Youth Registration Reform, an organization that is working to remove children and adults who have been listed on the national sex offender registry for offenses they committed while they were children. Their conversation contemplates the grey areas of sexual offenses, where the perpetrator can also be a victim, and how in so many circumstances, labels such as offenders, victims, and enablers can ruin lives.
In the early days of The Nantucket Project, co-founder Tom Scott was told: “What you really do, is create conversation.” That was in 2011. Seven years later, it’s all happening. Along with Creative Director and New York Times best-selling author, Kelly Corrigan, Tom speaks about the benefits of connecting with people through honest and meaningful conversation. 2018 marks the introduction of TNP’s newest arm, The Neighborhood Project, where the people behind the beloved annual gathering on Nantucket bring the event to living rooms around the country. As Tom promises: “We’re going to go out and continue to look for meaning, package it and share it.”
