Grants to this Grantee
for the Arts in a Changing America: ArtChangeUS project
ArtChangeUS, a fiscally sponsored project of CEL Education Fund, is a five-year initiative that stimulates the arts sector to examine and respond to the dramatic demographic changes occurring in the United States. It does this by hosting high-profile conferences; producing performances, workshops, and educational events for the arts and other sectors; and publishing essays, interviews, and a quarterly journal. In its first year, ArtChangeUS has reached more than 2,000 people, including a conference in San Francisco. This first-time grant will support the project’s activities that advance conversations and practices about cultural and aesthetic changes, and ensure the arts play an ongoing and vital role as the demographics of the United States continue to change.
for support of UltraViolet's reproductive rights activism
UltraViolet is a national grassroots community founded in 2012 to provide fast-moving, high-energy advocacy campaigns on women’s issues. This grant would provide support for UltraViolet’s work on reproductive rights, focused on educating women, especially younger women, about the importance of reproductive health and encouraging them to participate in campaigns to protect reproductive rights. Since its inception, UltraViolet has grown its online activist membership to more than half a million. UltraViolet would use its rapid response, tech-savvy approach to expand the base of people ready to take action to support reproductive rights, increase the visibility of this national constituency, and influence public debates.
