ANF Emerging Artists Fellows Program 2021/22
Africa No Filter is seeking exceptional emerging artists for a 12-month remote fellowship. Fellows will be expected to develop and deliver a project which demonstrates and/or explores how art and creativity can be used to challenge harmful narratives about Africa and present contemporary, accurate narratives. The Arts Fellows Programme will provide 12 exceptional creative practitioners from across the continent with mentorship, peer to peer skills sharing and new networks through monthly fellow-led seminars throughout the year. Fellows are also supported with a $5000 grant to assist in executing the proposed project, documenting findings and establishing new creative methodologies that can be presented and taught to a wider audience. The Arts Fellowship welcomes emerging artists from all creative disciplines and invites proposals for both digital and in-person projects, with Africa being the focus. Fellows are expected to attend a physical convening in 2021. For the Call Out, please visit bit.ly/ANFESPCallOut For the Application Guideline, please visit bit.ly/ANFEAPApplicationGuide
