Grants of up to $15,000 to California nonprofit organizations, state, and municipal public agencies to support young emerging media artists. The purpose of the program is to encourage youth to create documentary podcasts or films that highlight problems communities face and propose solutions for creating a future they envision. Eligible programs provide training and support to emerging media makers in the creation of short, insightful nonfiction films and/or podcasts that tell original stories about life in California today.
California Humanities is particularly interested in projects that, in addition to providing technical training in media production, actively support young Californians in thinking critically about media messages. Competitive proposals will also encourage reflection and deepened understanding of subjects and issues relevant to participants’ lives and communities.
California Humanities seeks compelling and accessible projects that reflect a broad cross-section of young Californians’ stories, bring new and previously unheard perspectives to light, and help to reveal the breadth and range of California’s cultures, peoples and histories.
