Local Focus

Kala Project exists to document and share diverse human stories in order to inspire a more compassionate community. Kala Project’s newest series, 52 Neighbors, will be accomplishing this same mission but with a local focus. Each week we will release a short film or written story that highlights the story and experiences of an individual living in the greater Grand Rapids community. 

Connecting Community

West Michigan is a great place to live and is full of wonderfully diverse individuals. But how often do we spend time getting to know our neighbors, whether across the street or across town? We envision a community where we view everyone as neighbors. A place where each person’s story matters and we are encouraged to learn and grow through relationships with one another.
