Kindle Project Launches The Solutions Laboratory
to Fund and Incubate Bold, New Ideas in Northern New Mexico
Individuals, non-profits and informal groups are encouraged to respond to a Request for Proposals

SANTA FE, NM – Communities in Northern New Mexico are facing challenges from drought and water scarcity due to a changing climate. Kindle Project wants to know what you would do to inspire and lead your community to bring about a vibrant future in the face of our shifting reality.

Kindle Project Solutions Laboratory seeks to support new, creative and inspiring alternatives and solutions coming from individuals, organizations and informal groups in Northern New Mexico. We invite our community; across all sectors, generations and fields to share ideas that would shift our collective sense towards a more vital future.

“Working in Northern New Mexico on several fronts, I have had the privilege to work with many strong leaders over the years. I’m confident that as a community, we can harness our rooted collective creativity to inspire real solutions for a changing planet.” – Sadaf Cameron, Kindle Project Director.

Kindle Project will select five applicants. Each will receive a $3000 award and participate in the four-month long program cohort. This program is aimed at nurturing the earliest stages of creativity, thus we are seeking new concepts and projects only. Selected participants will include up to three individuals or informal groups and at least two non-profit organizations.

This is Kindle Project’s first ever open call for applications and we hope it will help to inspire and empower our region to take control of its own destiny.

The full Request for Proposals will be made available here on September 16th.
