Culture & Narrative Fellowship LogoThe Opportunity Agenda’s Culture & Narrative Fellowship was founded on the belief that artists and cultural strategists can play an active role in narrative and culture change. Housed within the Narrative Innovators Lab, fellows have the opportunity to ideate and collaborate with participants from our Communications Institute. Fellows also receive a $15,000 award and strategic support for their proposed art or cultural interventions during a six-month period.

Using the latest in narrative research and communication tools, this year’s Fellows will have an opportunity to explore and challenge white supremacist narratives alongside advocates and thought leaders.
