About the Center for Cultural Power
Keep Powering the Culture Wave
The Center for Cultural Power is a women of color, artist-led organization, inspiring artists and culture makers to imagine a world where power is distributed equitably and where we live in harmony with nature. We support artists through fellowships, training and opportunities for activation. We create intersectional stories and content addressing issues of migration, climate, gender and racial justice. We engage groups in cultural strategy and organize artists in issues that inspire them. Together with allies, we are co-creating a field of cultural strategy with organizations and practitioners through convenings, design teams and strategy tables.
We ignite change at the intersection of art, culture and social justice. Join us in growing a movement where artists are at the heart of social change.
Creating Connections with BIPOC Artists
Through Unstoppable Voters, Alejandra is working with Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) artists across the United States to create content that moves people from feeling cynical (that their vote doesn’t matter) and fearful to feeling inspired and motivated.
This wave of creative activism that will be seen across the nation will be designed to turn up the urgency, excitement, and engagement amongst people who support protecting and expanding voting rights, climate justice, abortion access, and the freedom to thrive.
Alejandra is in a worker bee phase, confirming partnerships with artists and finalizing civic engagement plans for the 2024 election cycle.
