We give grants to storytellers in arts, culture and content creators as well as media professionals and organizations who belong to the African Narrative Collective and are committed to telling better stories and telling stories better about Africa. Better stories are the ones that show Africa’s exceptionalism and highlight our creativity and innovation. They are stories that entertain and inspire. They show the unexpected and promote the positive. These are stories that centre new voices, new heroes and new stories with characters who have agency in contemporary settings that reflect the Africa we want.
