Meet our grantee:
The Opportunity Agenda
Type of grant:Building the Pop Culture for Social Change Field
The Opportunity Agenda is a social justice communication lab that works to advance the impact of the social justice community. It works with social justice leaders, groups, creative artists, and movements nationwide, using communications and cultural strategies to move hearts and minds, and to drive lasting policy for a more just society.
The organization’s ground-breaking Creative Change Retreat, begun a decade ago, has become a hub through which artists, entertainers, cultural makers, advocates, activists, and other leaders meet and develop new ideas for leveraging culture to advance social justice.
With support from the Pop Culture Collaborative, The Opportunity Agenda hosted the 2019 Creative Change Retreat at Sundance. Following the event, The Opportunity Agenda is providing a range of opportunities for continued engagement, project development, and amplification of the work that emerges.
“It is more important than ever to come together to build energy for bold, creative ideas that bring us closer to the world we want to see. Creative Change holds space for artists and strategists to dream beyond and seed visionary work for others to see, embrace, act upon.” Betsy Richards, Director of Cultural Strategies, The Opportunity Agenda
