Communications and Marketing

Effective communication is one of the most powerful tools you have to build community across space, time, and circumstance. You want to reach the right people, in the right way, with the right messages to advance your goals. The work you do is important, and you need the tools to scream it from the rooftops.

VIVA takes a storytelling approach, grounded in representation, inclusivity, and equity, to communicate your need and impact. We draw out powerful narratives from stakeholders, partners, and community members and turn these into resources for reaching audiences through digital and community-based outreach strategies.
