In August 2014, we launched a 5-year philanthropic experiment to prove we could change a community by uncovering and investing in great people. We call it People's Liberty.
To date, People’s Liberty has awarded grants to 55 individuals with bold ideas to impact our region. To work alongside our core staff and grantees, we've also hired 25 early-career individuals into a 3-month design/storytelling residency program.
This fall, marks 2.5 years of work. Phew.
Intermission is a multi-week celebration to mark this halfway point, reflect on what has been accomplished so far and begin a conversation about what’s to come.
