At the end of October we submitted our California Humanities for All Quick Grant application, in conjunction with KVMR Community Radio, for the A Place to Call Home project. The process of writing this grant really allowed us to clearly form and articulate the foundation of the project, and to see the many opportunities ahead, as we move on through the year as a co-creative team. We will find out whether our project receives the $5,000 funding at the end of December. Click here to read the Grant Narrative for the A Place to Call Home project.
We have also applied to participate in the NPR Story Lab workshop in Washington D.C. in early March. Thirty teams will be chosen for this workshop, where they will then work with NPR Story Lab mentors, brainstorm, and collaborate as a group, to develop/refine their audio-centric projects in new and innovative ways. At the end of the three-day workshop, NPR will pick up to three projects to develop further, and potentially broadcast on NPR, along with awarding up to $10, 000 per project to the chosen teams. We are excited about the possibility of attending this workshop, and will know by mid-December if A Place to Call Home is among the chosen teams.
