Africa No Filter (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.
ANF offers grants directly and indirectly through intermediaries as part of their work in strengthening the narrative change ecosystem by developing robust research and nuanced storytelling about Africa.
Operational Support Grants
Africa No Filter offers Operational Support Grants to not-for-profit organisations who are aligned to their mission and are based in Africa and the Diaspora (their work must benefit African creatives, artists or storytellers). Funds can be used to cover operational costs to keep the organisation going whilst it conducts its work.
Project Support Grants
ANF Project Support Grants 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.
