Now in its second year, WE!Are Africa Unmuted is a powerful campaign that celebrates the remarkable spirit of Africa in the face of climate injustice and social challenges. We proudly showcase the ingenuity and resilience of African communities, especially in climate- vulnerable regions. Our stories speak directly from their lived experiences, reimagining Africa’s green climate future in innovative ways.

Are you in charge of a Creative Hub - a physical or online space that welcomes creatives, a place where learning, networking, and growth opportunities come together? We!Are want to hear from you.

As part of the WE!ARE Climate Justice campaign, Crtve Development is excited to invite Creative Hubs from Kenya to apply to participate in showcases, workshops and mentor programmes, which will address climate change in innovative ways.

From there you will take the lead in organising, overseeing, and fostering the creation of a Moment of Change (a dynamic pop-up showcase) or creative exhibit that embodies the spirit of climate justice within the framework of “The Africa We Want To See.”

This Moment of Change will spotlight collaborative work crafted in tandem with their community, and spotlight some of its most imaginative, impactful, and forward-thinking emerging young artists.

Shortlisted hubs will be selected, from which a winning hub will be selected and receive a usd **10,000 **grant to further build out their hub.

Creative Hubs must demonstrate the following

in their application:

  • Plan and execute three workshops to the creative community on art and creativity as a tool for social change. These workshops must have at least 30 participants in attendance
  • One workshop to be delivered in Swahili, or other non-english language
  • Winning Hub will participate in capacitation workshops to further develop their concepts and networking opportunities. Facilitate payments to the selected creative coordinator and five participating artists
  • Have a strong and efficient team of at least three people, who will be committed to this project

Interested hubs are invited to submit a proposal answering the following questions. **Application deadline is 25 September, 2023 **Proposals can be submitted in any format to martin@creativedevelop.org with the subject line ‘WE!ARE Application 2023’.
