Partner with Hivos in freedom of expression

Offered by Hivos

Hivos East Africa announces a new call for proposals for our audio visual content production grants. Targeting a myriad of artists only in Uganda and Tanzania, the second phase of the Resource Of Open Minds (R.O.O.M) program, will continue to support a new generation of makers from the creative and cultural sector to produce alternative content that champions open societies and pushes back on the shrinking civic space.

The work of creatives also faces extreme challenges in their quest for survival and sustainability such as financing deficits and the present COVID19 pandemic respectively.

To this end, Hivos East Africa is offering a limited number of creative and cultural content production grants of up to Euro 15,000 each, for artists in Uganda and Tanzania working in the production of audio-visual content that sheds light on socio-political issues often ignored by society.
