Our Grants

ANF grants support emerging and established artists, scholars, authors, poets, bloggers, vloggers, photographers, curators, publishers, musicians, journalists, and arts, culture and media organisations that are already challenging stereotypes about Africa. 

We offer grants directly and indirectly through intermediaries as part of our work of strengthening the narrative change ecosystem by developing robust research and nuanced storytelling about Africa.
