The Pop Culture Collaborative is a philanthropic fund and funder learning community that unleashes the power of popular culture to transform the narrative landscape around Black and Indigenous people, people of color, immigrants, refugees, and Muslimsin the U.S.—especially those who are women, queer, trans, gender expansive, and/or disabled—through partnerships between social justice movements and the entertainment, advertising, and media industries. We believe there is an opportunity—and that philanthropy has a responsibility—to build a thriving ﬁeld capable of working together to create new narrative oceans that make a just and pluralist future in which everyone belongs feel desirable, achievable, and inevitable. With the vision and backing of a bold set of philanthropic investors (“Managing Partners”) and other donors, in 2016 the Collaborative began building a fund to resource this vital work – and accelerate the impact of artists, social justice organizers, narrative and cultural strategists, researchers, funders, and others to affect change through pop culture-level narrative strategies.
