We support the community of storytellers and organisation already working to shift stereotypical narratives of Africa through the development of nuanced and contemporary stories. We do this by investing in Research, Grantmaking, Community Building and Advocacy.
Our vision is a world where the prevailing narrative within and about Africa is reflective of a progressive and dynamic continent.
Our mission is to connect and build the field of narrative change makers in Africa; Support storytellers and dissemination platforms to crowd in more progressive, nuanced storylines and to drive disruption campaigns that challenge harmful narratives
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 within and about Africa.
“ Narratives are a collection of related stories that are articulated and refined over time to represent a central idea or belief. ”
