The CatchLight Visual Leadership Fellowship serves as an incubator — a place for innovative leaders in the visual storytelling field to receive financial support, unlock individual potential, grow and leverage partnerships. The Fellowship cultivates a vibrant community of creative thought leaders whose work will be enhanced by collaboration, mentorship, and networking.
CatchLight believes in the importance of images to foster a more empathetic understanding of the world. Our goal is to grow a thriving visual storytelling ecosystem. Our aim is to bring resources and support to all types of leaders in visual storytelling who are looking to have significant impact and care about the sustainability of the field.
ELEMENTS OF THE PROGRAM:
Financial Grant: a $30,000 award will be distributed throughout the fellowship year to support the production and development of the Fellow and project.
Project Development and Network Building: personalized project development and networking opportunities through CatchLight’s vibrant community of creative thought leaders across media, art and entrepreneurship. Fellows will participate in person at two key CatchLight programs in San Francisco: a kickoff weekend in May, 2020 and a Leadership Retreat in November, 2020.
Amplification: During the first year, Fellows will work on their proposed project with the networking support of CatchLight. CatchLight will offer continued amplification and engagement support for another year past the fellowship year. The nature of the awarded fellow’s work will determine the appropriate partnerships, model, and timeline for distribution.
