Salzburg Global Provides Community Support Awards for Young Cultural Innovators

Funds redistributed to support Salzburg Global Fellows in Detroit, Memphis, and New Orleans in light of COVID-19 pandemic Fellows come together for a group hug during last year's program of the Salzburg Global Forum for Young Cultural Innovators

Salzburg Global Seminar will support Young Cultural Innovators (YCI) who have lost income as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In partnership with the Kresge Foundation, Salzburg Global will provide 12 awards up to $500 to members of the Detroit, Memphis, and New Orleans Young Cultural Innovator Hubs.

Members from these Hubs were due to visit Baltimore, MD, this year for a regional meeting. Following a consultation, however, members suggested the funds be reallocated to support financially-hit Fellows.

Artists and cultural practitioners around the world have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic due to the cancellation of scheduled projects, events, and opportunities.

Salzburg Global and the Kresge Foundation are delighted to accommodate the request from Fellows and provide assistance during these difficult times.


The Salzburg Global Forum for Young Cultural Innovators empowers rising talents in the creative sector to drive social, economic, and urban change. Launched in 2014, it is building a global network of 500 competitively-selected changemakers in “hub” communities who design collaborative projects, build skills, gain mentors, and connect to upcoming innovators in their cities and countries.
