The Africa No Filter (ANF) is a donor collaborative program established to look into the narrative about Africa, which is often characterized by persistently negative stories and stereotypes that focus more on challenges and less on progress.
The program seeks to support the development and promotion of nuanced stories that will rectify existing stereotypical narratives about Africa through research, grant making and advocacy.
The fellowship will empower a narrative change ecosystem and an informed community of storytellers who work more deliberately, and with intention to change harmful stories about Africa.
The aim is to rectify how Africans view themselves and are viewed by others as informed by stereotypical and outdated views.
In addition, make the narrative evidence-based and relevant to the African conversations around investment in Africa, youth unemployment, migration, development, and other big issues African countries are dealing with.
The program is funded by Ford Foundation, Bloomberg, Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Luminate, Open Society Foundations, Comic Relief and the Hilton Foundation.
Applications must be submitted by the deadline of Friday 13th November, 2020.
The Fellowship will be granted in December 2020, to be completed by 31st July 2021.
Research Fellows will participate in a Content Analysis exercise which could be a general content analysis, a frame analysis, or a discourse analysis for a prescribed period.
