Moving Narratives

Developed in collaboration with the British Council, Moving Narratives re-examines legacies of the past, defies euro-centric social and historical discourses, centres the perspectives of marginalised communities, and forges connections between contemporary emancipatory movements and their historical roots.

Fellows receive €10,000 to invest in the further growth of their practice, engaging their communities and harnessing the power of culture to challenge and transform.


The programme is a collective moment to experiment, exchange, and develop artistic strategies that address dominant narratives and the inequalities they perpetuate.

Moving Narratives cohorts tackle locally rooted issues while speaking to the global challenges humanity is facing, whether through challenging authoritarianism and fascism, articulating issues around the patriarchy and capitalism, or reexamining history and collective memory.


We welcome applications from individuals who have ±7-15 years of relevant professional experience and whose individual practice relates to visual art, curation, writing, music, performance, design, architecture, and more. Individuals who are arts managers, facilitators, academic researchers, or others, without an individual artistic practice, do not fall under this category, and as such are not eligible to apply.

We encourage applications from artists working from their lived experiences and own communities, and we prioritise practices that focus on intersectional and locally-rooted perspectives.

Eligible applicants must be from, live, and work in our eligible countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean and Eastern Europe.
