20 local non-profits.
2020 Vision is a media grant project designed to amplify & forward the deep work being done by the non-profit & charities right here in our hometown of Victoria.
We’re gifting 20 live broadcast events, over 20 months, to 20 local community-based organizations in order to help them reach more people, scale their message, capture some beautiful video, and build an expanded awareness of the cause they champion! 2020 Vision is our way of saying THANK YOU for all that you’re doing to make a more beautiful, just, compassionate, balanced and sustainable world.
In December 2017 we announced an open invitation to apply to receive one of the 2020 Vision grants, which are all-inclusive broadcast packages including the livestream team, the bandwidth, the online hosting, the venue (Sunset Labs, on the beautiful upper harbour of downtown Victoria), the operations staff, the sound & lighting & equipment, a tea service for the attendees – even the janitorial.
We received 30 applications for the ten grants available in 2018, and made our selections! Below you’ll find the 2018 grant recipients as well as the remaining 2018 broadcast dates! Over the last 10 months we’ve been able to lift and amplify issues like proportional representation, creative communities, reconciliation, inquiry learning and youth education, food sustainability, government accountability, indigenous rights and so much more.
2019 GRANT APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN!
There are 10 grants available, one per month, throughout 2019. Applications are now OPEN until January 20, 2019. Recipients of the 2019 series of grants will be announced January 28th, 2019 and the full 2019 calendar of events published on January 30th. We can’t wait to receive your application, and hope to find a way to contribute to your work next year! Do please JOIN US in spreading the word , by SHARING this page and application with other community organizations you think should be better seen for the work they do.
Thanks again for your work, we look forward to amplifying your message!
