Announcing our 10 Year Anniversary Partners!

May 29, 2018

What do coloring book illustrators, community organizers, performance artists, film mavens, and music geniuses have in common? They’re all movers and shakers, culture-makers and Kindle Project grantees and awardees. We are celebrating our 10 Year Anniversary with these old and new friends the Kindle Project way– with commitment, participation, experimentation, and creativity.

Without further ado, we introduce to you our  Kindle Project 10-Year Anniversary Partners…

You might be asking yourself, what does all this mean? Good thing we have this post to explain how our decennial celebration works.

Commitment

We know that our strongest relationships come from committing for the long haul. And many of these partners are folks that we’ve been funding and collaborating with for years. Therefore, each of our 10 Year Anniversary Partners will be receiving grants and gifts to continue to honor their work.

Participation

We know that diversification of decision-making power is one of the most powerful tools we have to disrupt the status quo. So we’re harnessing the wisdom of each of our 10 Year Anniversary Partners by giving them each a Flow Fund (a.k.a a little pot of moolah) that they can recommend be reallocated to an organization of their choice.

Experimentation

Experimentation is at the core of what we do. Not only have our 10 Year Anniversary Partners collaborated on discovering who to support via their Flow Funds but we are taking it to the next level by asking each of them to carefully craft a question to spark new ideas that will be the basis of our new open call: the Carousel Awards.

Getting Creative (a.k.a YOUR chance to win $1000!)

Launching in July, our Carousel Awards will pose one question a month from each of our 10 Year Anniversary Partners. The applications for the Carousel Awards will be open to individuals or group. The winner will receive $1000 to support their idea. Make sure you are on our mailing list and follow us on social media because you’re not going to want to miss the launch of Carousel.

Get to know each of our Flow Funding Partners on social media over the next ten days! Follow along… Instagram, Twitter, Facebook
