Black & White Projects is pleased to announce that our founder, Rhiannon Evans MacFadyen, is one of four inaugural recipients of the CALI Catalyst Award, a first-of-its-kind grant award presented by Center for Cultural Innovation to artists catalyzing systemic change within the Arts & Culture sector.
“The inaugural roster of CALI Catalyst grantees demonstrates the profound impacts that can result when individuals hold a mirror up to the arts and culture sector itself, forcing it to be accountable to the public trust,” shared CCI President and CEO Angie Kim. “We are honored to support the catalyzing efforts of these California changemakers, who are shaping the future of the field that we want to see.”
The grants are part of the program’s first of three open application rounds in 2021. The initial round attracted 114 applicants from throughout the state of California. Of these, the four grantees chosen to receive awards are Taylor Brandon, Rhiannon Evans MacFadyen, Joel Garcia, and Ann James.
