Hivos East Africa has announced 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.

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. The grants are divided in the below categories:

  • Film
  • Fashion
  • Creative design
  • Music Production
  • Online content creation
  • Photography
  • Virtual reality
  • Gaming
  • Media

Grantees will receive training and expert advice on business management, content monetization and content creation. In addition to this, Hivos East Africa will organize various linking and learning sessions where grantees will interact and share experiences, challenges and lessons with their peers and experts from around Africa.

All applications should be submitted to with the subject line: ‘Application for Production Grant – ‘Name of Entity/Organisation’. The deadline for submission is 3 July 2020.
