The Black & Brown Podcast Collective Announces the First Ever “Black Women, the Experience” Podcast Grant
The Black & Brown Podcast Collective is excited to announce its “Black Women, the Experience Podcast Grant”, which will award microgrants to Black women in podcasting who are sharing their unique stories and experiences through podcasting.
The application process for the “Black women, the Experience Podcast Grant” will open on October 14, 2020, where Black women in podcasting can apply for an unrestricted microgrant. Grants can range anywhere between $250 — $1000 depending on the podcast’s content, length, and need.
“As a woman of color, it is vital for me to help change how the world hears our narratives — and changing how the world hears our narratives begin with encouraging and supporting those who are brilliant and bold enough to share those unique narratives with the world,” writes Marsha, Founder of the Black & Brown Podcast Collective.
After having to postpone plans for the first-ever Black & Brown Podcast Festival & awards show due to Covid-19, Marsha wanted to continue the mission of celebrating and supporting podcasters of color despite the pandemic. As an extension of this mission, she founded The Black & Brown Podcast Collective, which seeks to support podcasters of color through resources and grant funding.
“Unfortunately, at times, the narratives of Black women are often overlooked and forgotten. At times it’s silenced, misconstrued, changed, and often miscommunicated. The Black & Brown Podcast Collective seeks to help change that reality.
Through the Black & Brown Podcast Collective’s grants, she hopes that this can be a small start to encourage the amplification of Black women’s voices in podcasting.
Grant applications will be evaluated based on the following criteria:
- Message and impact
To submit a grant application, podcasters should sign-up for free to The Black & Brown Podcast Collective by visiting www.bbpodcollective.com. Applications will be available on the site starting on October 14, 2020.
