The Catalyst Role

Become a Catalyst

Building a stronger community starts with you.

KCCI Community Catalysts are change agents. They make a volunteer commitment to educate, engage and enable fellow citizens to build a more authentic, sustainable and prosperous community.

2022 Project: Wander in Wonder

KCCI’s 2022 project, “Wander in Wonder,” will merge art and adventure by establishing a plan to install permanent art exhibits somewhere along Tallahassee’s 850-plus miles of trails. To accomplish this, a team of “Community Catalysts” will work with local leaders, artists and organizations to identify a trail or system of trails where they can incorporate delightfully unexpected surprises that contribute to Tallahassee’s distinct identity.

The initiative continues KCCI’s 15-year history of equipping community volunteers to bolster the Big Bend’s sense of place and spur economic growth. Countless studies demonstrate the benefits of public art – from fostering community pride and a sense of belonging to promoting improved mental and physical health. “Wander in Wonder” aims to advance those benefits while also encouraging more people to explore our city’s award-winning outdoor amenities.

The application to be a 2022 KCCI Community Catalyst was open until October 31. Once an applicant successfully applied, they received a confirmation email from Executive Director Betsy Couch with further details.  The 2022 Class was announced in December 2021. Catalyst applicants do not need a background in art to apply, as this effort will require skills and experience across a range of professions, as well as diverse perspectives from all walks of life. We hope you will join us in 2022!
