Africa No Filter’s Kekere Storytellers Fund is looking to support content creators, wordsmiths, performance artists, visual artists, or journalists whose work tells African stories beyond stereotypes of poverty, conflict, disease, poor leadership, and corruption.

The fund pays micro-grants to emerging storytellers who are already creating and publishing unique and compelling content that offers fresh and alternative perspectives of Africa, to show a continent that’s innovative, evolving, and creative.

The organisation is particularly keen on supporting storytellers telling an interesting, unique story about Africa; stories that amplify unheard voices, challenge global perspectives and introduce contemporary narratives.
