Africa No Filter - Project Support Grant

ANF is a donor collaborative funded by Ford Foundation, Bloomberg, Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Luminate, Open Society Foundation, Comic Relief and the Hilton Foundation.  We support the development of nuanced stories that shift existing, stereotypical narratives about Africa through research, grant-making and advocacy. ANF’s goal over time is to leave an empowered narrative change ecosystem and an informed community of storytellers who work more deliberately to change harmful narratives about Africa.   

Africa No Filter is accepting grant applications for creative projects in Africa that challenge pre-existing, harmful narratives of the continent using innovation, tech, art and creativity. In order to be eligible for this grant:

- The project must be executed in Africa and primarily for Africans
- The applicant must have evidence of delivering similar work successfully
- The applicant must be able to provide a breakdown of the total project budget
- If applying as an organisation, the lead applicant must have the legal authority to submit this application
- The applicant must be available for a short follow-up application interview, where necessary

Organisations* - Apply for up to $30,000 for support for your narrative-changing projects. 

Individuals - Apply for up to $15,000 to support your narrative-changing projects.

*Organisations include creative hubs, charities, institutions, festivals, creative collectives, NGO's and for-profit organisations.
