We are very pleased to announce that thanks to the generosity of the James Irvine Foundation, the Pan-Valley Institute will have a third cycle of the Tamejavi Cultural Organizing Fellowship Program (TCOFP).
In June 2016, PVI will begin its third installment of the 18-month fellowship program designed to strengthen the cultural organizing skills of the Central Valley's emerging cultural leaders.
Do you know a grassroots leader representing a Central Valley immigrant community, who is rooted in the community, is interested in mobilizing and engaging people in creative endeavors and is open to learning strategies for activating the power of culture and art for bringing social change?
If so, we invite you to nominate him /her to be part of this new phase of the TCOFP. Many components of the program will continue the same, however after reflecting on lessons learned and evaluations we will make noteworthy changes for the third cycle of the TCOFP. Some of the changes will be:
