Hivos (Southern Africa) is seeking concept notes for the “Amplification Grants Extension” from registered artistic collectives, creative hubs, and groups of content creators in the audio-visual sector. This grant aims to support the production of more consciously independent and self-sufficient makers, who create more critical, African cultural, media and intellectual productions, reach a wider and more diverse African audience and have an increased capacity to promote gender inclusivity, economic class diversity, and local accessibility and ownership in facilitating African cultural and media productions.

The “Amplification Grants Extension” open call is directed to registered entities that have grown their capacity to manage long-term grants and have carried out at least one project audit. Besides artistic imagination, the production of Afrocentric/ Pan-African independent and conscious work that challenges or questions norms in society will be an important factor in the awarding of grants.
