“After the Story, Comes the Critique: Funders leading narrative change efforts” webinar
Critics, like storytellers, have a powerful role in contextualizing narratives. They can uniquely intercede with a counter story, offer deeper historical exposition, or highlight an alternative shared experience while advocating for silenced voices. In this webinar we’re interested in exploring what’s possible when the critics voice is from the ALAANA (African, Latinx, Asian, Arab, and Native American) community, their impact upon the field, and what role funders can play.

Join us as we close GIA’s narrative change series with this webinar on November 12 at 3pm EST/11am PST with Chi-hui Yang (Ford Foundation) and Elizabeth Méndez Berry (The Nathan Cummings Foundation). They will lead discussion on media critique, speak to their collaborative project Critical Minded, and share how funders can lead narrative change. Details and registration here.
