"The first thing that comes to mind when thinking of teaming with Tamara is detail orientated. She is one of those meticulously organized people that I can count on for follow through... and a follow through that allows you to rest easy knowing that a project will be complete from A to Z."

"Tamara produces the greatest events ever. One art gathering had patrons wrapping around the block to get in to peek at the art. Even the who is who in the art world waited in line patiently to catch a glimpse of these hand picked emerging talents."

"One thing I can say about working with Tamara and LivelyHood is that I feel like I can confidently relax - when I would generally stress - because I trust her knack for thinking comprehensibly about every detail, doing what she says she's going to do, and pressing me to get the most out of my own vision."

LIL RAGGAMUFFIN SUMMER CAMP

This organization operated a summer camp for 10 years in the Blue Mountains of Jamaica. Our founder proudly served as the Event Producer & Director of Operations.


"Tamara came into our organization and helped take a huge load off of my shoulders. She saw that we struggled with our management of travel logistics for our volunteers and stepped in with some really thoughtful systems that helped solve our problems. Through her I realized the value of bringing in experts to take on areas of work that are not my strong suit. I also really appreciated her approach as she took the time to first learn the assets of our organization and help us build upon our strengths instead of just applying cookie cutter ideas that didn't fit."

"I had the pleasure of partnering with LivelyHood for the AFROS book release event at Powerhouse Books in DUMBO, Brooklyn. In typical Virgo fashion, Tamara planned and executed the event with passion and attention to detail from start to finish. Always the effective communicator and taskmaster, Tamara ensured that every "i" was dotted and every "t" was crossed to create a festive and successful evening. The sold-out event attracted over 600 well-connected New Yorkers who were excited to celebrate Michael July's highly anticipated, independent book release. The AFROS book launch event was truly the party of the season and talk of the town for weeks thanks to LivelyHood's creative and strategic approach to event production."

A Word from the Founder

TAMARA HOOD

I’ve always had a zest for organizing and planning, and I believe that every event deserves to be special. With this philosophy in mind I founded LivelyHood LLC in 2011 by combining three of my life passions: event planning, giving back and the arts.


With almost two decades of successful event production and travel planning

under my belt in the corporate, nonprofit and political arenas; a lifetime of giving back including a two and a half year full-time, volunteer leadership role with the 2008 Obama campaign; and a consistent, deep appreciation for and support of the arts across the board; LivelyHood was a natural step.


For 11 years prior to running LivelyHood full-time, I held two positions within the Viacom International business. I served as the Executive Assistant to the EVP & Chief Research Officer for Viacom Media Networks and upon relocating to Los Angeles in June of 2016, transitioned into supporting the EVP & Chief Digital Officer of BET Networks, a position I held until April 2017.


The roles were project management based and I executed many small to large events both individually and with the events team. Examples include countless onsite meetings and offsite conferences, internal and external social events, the BET Soul Train Awards, BET Experience, Vh1 Scope - Art Basel Miami, FOCUS featuring Jonathan Mannion, and many, many more.
