Groundation Grenada is a social action collective which focuses on the use of creative media to assess the needs of our communities, raise consciousness and act to create positive radical growth. Our mission is to provide active safe spaces to incubate new modes of resistance, building from the local to affect regional and international solidarity and change. We pursue our mission online, through our website and social media, and also through live events and special projects in collaboration with local, regional and international artists, activists and institutions. Groundation Grenada’s website supports both local and diasporic voices, acting as an interface to connect people who are hungry for innovative change.
Groundation Grenada was created in 2009 with the vision that Grenadian society is fertile for positive change, requiring simply the necessary seeds and by extension the seed sowers. Being properly nourished these seeds will eventually bear the fruit of individual and national consciousness and autonomy. This virtual platform represents the nexus of the sowers and the society; a meeting of the minds where ideas are not only sown and nurtured but also realized through positive collective action.
