About the Catalyst for Change Fellowship 

The Catalyst for Change (CFC) Fellowship focuses on radical imagination as a key component of pursuing racial justice. The award is intended to catalyze community-based and artist produced visions for creative solutions to injustices. The CFC Award is open to Latinx artists and culture workers with the potential to utilize collaborative, community informed process, combined with their artistic practice t o increase civic engagement/activism, thereby creating systemic change through artistic interventions.

CFC Objectives

  • Build the capacity of Latinx artists and their practice at the intersection of artmaking, cultural strategy, civic engagement, racial justice, and equity.
  • Cultivate and empower artistic leaders and artist networks that are working - directly with community members and leaders - towards equity and just change at the local or  regional level. 
  • Strengthen cultural power and collaboration with Latinx communities across the United States and Puerto Rico.
  • Increase peoples’ democratic decision making, adaptivity and cultural organizing practice within communities of practice across the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
