The Africa No Filter is seeking applications for its Project Support Grants to support the delivery of creative projects on the continent by storytellers and media platforms that are using art, innovation, tech and creativity to challenge stereotypical narratives about Africa.
Grants must be for a specific project, with a clear start and end date and project milestones.
- Building the ecosystem of narrative changemakers: They have started working to identify narrative changemakers on the continent e.g. producers, writers, platform owners, advocacy groups.
- Crowding in New Narratives: They support content creators (storytellers) and media platforms through their grantmaking.
- Disruption: They are keen to position theirselves as an African narrative watchdog – a central source for tracking, recording, sharing learnings and data around examples of harmful narratives on the continent and attempts to disrupt it.
- Research: Their research agenda is focused on making narrative and the work they do evidence-based, salient and relevant to the African conversations.
Amount: Up to $25,000
Individual storytellers and arts, culture, and media organisations in Africa and the Diaspora. The grant supports theatre, comedy, literature, digital animation, film, and visual art projects by individuals and organisations.
