Grants of $20,000 to New Mexico nonprofit organizations for media projects that benefit minority teen girls. Funding is intended to support the production of media projects researching topics related to healing and gender justice that engage girls between the ages of 10 and 21. Projects may employ the medium of video, audio, animation, drawing, painting, or photography, or some combination of those mediums.

Objectives Of The 2020 Adolescent Girls Of Color Multimedia Research Project

Through this funding cycle, NMW.O is seeking to partner with non-profit organizations that focus on community-based media production with a gender and social justice lens. Specifically, this RFP invites organizations that have worked with youth of color and are able to convene a group of adolescent girls of color to facilitate a multimedia research project centering their knowledge and experiences. By multimedia, the Foundation means video, audio, animation, drawing, painting, photography or some combination of those mediums. The themes, key research questions, medium and methods will be chosen by the girls who will also conduct the multimedia-based research. With help and support where needed, the content would be compiled into a final product, the the format and design of which will be decided by the girls. The intent would be for the final product to be shared with the broader community and potentially used by NMW.O in its gender justice work, with permission and credit. Should applicants wish to partner or collaborate with organizations serving girls of color statewide, NMW.O has grantee partners who may be open to collaboration.

The Objectives of This Funding Cycle Are to:

  • Create a multimedia research product(s) centering the stories, voices, knowledge and wisdom of adolescent girls of color in New Mexico.
  • Support and enable adolescent girls of color in New Mexico to address the issues that most impact their lives by sharing their own stories and experiences via this project.
  • Support adolescent girls of color to build their capacity and experience around research and arts usingmultimedia methods and techniques, and the curation of compelling narratives.
  • Shift the broader narrative around gender justice in New Mexico by centering the lived experiences of young girls of color in New Mexico.
  • Highlight issues facing or affecting adolescent girls of color and explore potential solutions to address them.
  • Strengthen the broader gender justice movement in New Mexico by partnering with organizations working with and/or serving adolescent girls of color, as well as low income and rural communities.

The Foundation defines adolescence as the transitional phase of growth and development between childhood and adulthood. Drawing on the World Health Organization (WHO) and others, it defines an adolescent as any person between the ages of 10 and 21. NMW.O takes an intersectional approach when defining adolescent girls of color, which is inclusive of transgender, two-spirited, and gender nonconforming or non-binary adolescents and youth.
