2020 Creative Change Innovation Fellowship
The Opportunity Agenda’s Creative Change Innovation Fellowship is an invitation-only pilot program intended to support a cohort of leading-edge storytellers during a six-month period (September 2020 – February 2021) as they create, imagine, and empower us with what’s possible.
In this moment of crisis for racial justice, public health, the economy, and our body politic, The Opportunity Agenda is grateful to be able to partner with artists and cultural strategists to help envision a new beginning for inclusivity, healing, and justice in our democracy. We believe that creative vision is essential to helping us rise up and become the country we aspire to be.
The fellowship aims to give each artist/cultural strategist an opportunity to 1) focus their efforts on projects that support an affirmative, creative vision for a more inclusive, just democracy and 2) gather field members to collaborate on, discuss and/or amplify their work.
