The Specifics

Creating opportunities for people to experience art in deep and meaningful ways is key to sustaining vibrant, healthy communities. When we’re engaged in right brain thinking, our creativity can be used as a channel for innovation, helping us view social challenges and opportunities through a fresh lens.

The GOOD Arts & Culture hub explores how creativity is used as a force for good, and we’re looking to you for further inspiration and action. We’ve been writing about the intersection between Arts & Culture and social impact for years, and now we’re aiming to enable more of the GOOD community to get involved. That’s why GOOD Maker is calling on artists, performers, teachers and you to propose a plan to nurture the arts. Maybe you’d like to organize a gallery walk for folks who previously have not had access, or start a social change film club, or teach a claymation workshop for high school students. Tell us how you would use $5,000 to inspire your community through the arts, and you could win the grant to bring your idea to life.

Submit a proposal between July 11 and August 8 (noon Pacific Time). From August 9 to August 23, we’ll open it up to a public vote. Rally your colleagues and friends to get behind your effort and join the GOOD community in selecting the winner.

Join GOOD Maker on Twitter @GOODmkr and Facebook.

Hi there,
I've got a terrific proposal that I've been trying to submit but I can't access the submission page. I am a member of Good through my personal FB page, but not the organization which I'm trying to submit for. I cannot register through my organization's FB (even though I've Liked you) so must register through email. After I enter the basic info and click Register nothing happens - on Safari or FireFox. Is it a Mac thing? Do I need to register using a PC? Or, is there temporary trouble with your registration page?

I would sure appreciate your help submitting my proposal. Thanks!
