Culture Surge (fiscal sponsor: California Community Foundation Community Initiatives Fund) is a broad coalition of change-makers working together in this vital moment for the survival of our communities, our democracy, and our shared future. Understanding that it is crucial to come together to align our values and our narrative approach, Culture Surge serves as a nexus for influencers, artists, and cultural strategists who can breathe life, hope, and representation into civic efforts. Culture Surge connects changemakers to key narratives across issues and campaigns, including voting access campaigns and COVID-19 response work, and coordinates resources and advising to maximize the impact of culture-driven initiatives to lead to concrete change. Culture Surge’s powerful network allows it to combine the skills to imagine a new future and broaden minds and inspire hearts, with on-the-ground partners in pivotal regions across the country.
