About Us

The Pop Culture Collaborative (“the Collaborative”) is a first-of-its-kind philanthropic resource and funder learning community working to unleash the power of pop culture to transform the narrative landscape in America. The Pop Culture Collaborative organizes and deploys financial and other resources to support the pop culture narrative change field—led by and centering Black and Indigenous peoples, people of color, immigrants and refugees, and Muslim peoples, especially those who are women, queer, trans, nonbinary, and/or disabled—to transform narrative oceans and build narrative power at scale. The Collaborative’s northstar is the creation of a pluralist nation— in which hundreds of millions of people will live in a society in which a true majority of Americans—including our leaders and icons—identify and/or behave as pluralists. The Collaborative invests in growing narrative infrastructure, immersion and leadership and forges partnerships between the social justice sector and the entertainment, advertising, and media industries.

With the vision and backing of a bold set of philanthropic investors (“Managing Partners”) and other donors, in 2016 the Collaborative began grantmaking to advance this vital work–and accelerate the impact of artists, social justice advocates, culture change strategists, tech innovators, academics, and others to affect change through entertainment and narratives in mass media. In just 7 years, the Collaborative has scaffolded, resourced, and nurtured the pop culture for social change field from the ground up, and tested a powerhouse set of narrative change focused grantmaking and field-building strategies.
