We strongly believe that the world needs more African narratives created by Africans. Often, the challenge is not desire, competence or ambition but resources. We have all been doing this work, in different ways (photography, film, art, writing etc.), using our own resources. However, this trip will enable us to bring our efforts together; do this work on a bigger scale; achieve greater impact; and reach a wider audience. We decided to involve you all and demonstrate what can happen when we pool our resources together.
