Supporting CBR’s Creative Season.

Over the past two years, Stir has had the privilege of supporting passionate creatives from CBR. It provides them with the tools to write a project proposal, a platform for exposure, and a crowd-voting system allowing obtain a $1000 grant to help them get started or build on what they have already achieved.

Although this has been both humbling and exciting, the Stir Crew believes that we can do more to support the local creative scene. In particular, we hope to be able to reach out to creatives from a wider range of backgrounds, to improve our educational tools, and to engage with the communities who are already doing amazing work to support creative entrepreneurship in CBR (and the world!).

For this purpose, we have decided to trial something that allows us to provide support in the time between grant seasons (The next of which will be running between April-June 2017.) This initiative is what we’ve called the Summer of Stir!

 

What is the Summer of Stir?

Between November 2016 and February 2017, Stir will be engaging with local creative and youth communities to support their events and festivals.

For each community we engage with, we will be offering a $500 grant to encourage their members and participants to pursue their passions and to become creative entrepreneurs!

Each grant will be exclusive to a specific community, and will use our crowd-voting system to determine who receives it. Anyone who creates an account on Stir can vote, and each person can vote for as many projects they want.

Best of all, every project created during the Summer of Stir will be automatically eligible for our Season 03 Grants!

We are currently offering a Summer of Stir Grant to the following communities and events:
