The Pop Culture Collaborative Offers Rapid Response Grants for Immediate Social Justice Goals.
The Pop Culture Collaborative is an innovative hub for high impact partnerships and grants designed to help organizations and individuals leverage the reach and power of pop culture for social justice goals. The “Pop Up” Rapid Response Grants are designed to support a short-term project developed in connection to a recent or upcoming acute political or cultural time hook and must be intended to reach an audience of more than a million people or engage artists, producers, and/or organizers that do so.
Funded projects must impact, support, or connect with at least one of these community groups: people of color, immigrants, refugees, or Muslims. They can work to support initiatives that build movements, drive campaigns, produce stories, and leverage mass media and entertainment media to drive positive narrative and social change in popular culture. Examples of funded projects include public events and private retreats; tools and resource prototypes; network and partnership building; story, narrative and strategic design process; and creative content including short film/video, concerts, music recordings, etc.
