Cultural Programming – Third Division (P3D3)

The GMDF Private Public Partnership Forum 3rd Division (P3D3) is a consortium of experts aligned in topics with the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) Third Committee which is dedicated to service the topics relating to Social, Humanitarian, Cultural Affairs, Equality and Human rights; https://www.un.org/en/ga/third/index.shtml

Through the 3rd Division, the P3 Special Measures Resolution (P3Res/SM) was adopted in 2021 and signed as an action toward public-private partnerships for cultural event programming. This resolution officially created GMDF’s adoption of the private sector forum structure through a series of; forum dialogues, expos, presentations, gala celebrations, music, sports and fashion related events. Production Partnerships within the commercialized mainstream arm of popular culture creates public awareness and funding support to strengthen related division projects and programs. Public affairs through such commercial activity and involving notable public influencers and figures throughout the cultural private sector offers a wide reach to share the Sustainable Development Goals, focusing on the core mission of GMDF and the P3 Forum. It is through these opportunities that we promote ourselves and achievements to support the goals.

The 3rd Division operates under an internal secretariat which answers to the P3 Executive (P3EX). Ambassadors are elected to support and endorse each program project. Programs may host private memberships and/or working groups designed in a production aspect and promoted by the appointed program ambassador. The Chairperson is elected annually through the P3 Forum Executive and with GMDF board approval. Under the Chairperson, these private members and ambassadors are responsible to support, help, select and facilitate annual programming and events, including budget requirements. Funds may be raised through a variety of participating donors and trusts which may work to ensure partnerships. In addition, donor and member pledges may be accepted directly through the foundation with a tax receipt once the funds have been verified and approved. Commercial event activity can be used to generate private sector activities with ticket sales, shows, concerts, and sporting or entertainment related showcases. Content related programming in the areas of film, television, print and digital media is a primary focus of engagement and education toward all the SDG goals and the related development missions within P3D2.
