A History of California Philanthropy

We worked with Southern California Grantmakers to design a temporary timeline installation for their annual conference in 2014. The timeline looks at grantmaking in the context of the past 40 years of Southern California’s history, including the AIDS crisis of the 80s, the LA Uprising in the 90s, and other major, impactful events. Research and writing by Vikram Jadhav. 

Each decade is separated into a different enclave and allowed space for conference attendees (various funding organizations) to leave notes on what funding priorities they remembered from the past four decades.
