The House of African Feminisms (HoAF) invites African artists, collectives and creative practitioners to create digital creative projects that can be displayed on the HoAF website.
This call for proposals is called “Feminisms and Sustainability” – focusing on how feminist movements can contribute to more sustainability in various areas of their societies. Inspired by the Sustainable Development Goals, this call hopes to answer what sustainability within the SDGs can mean from an African feminist perspective.
The House of African Feminisms is a networking and resource platform for African feminists initiated by Goethe-Institut network in Sub-Saharan Africa.
For this grant the term sustainability is used broadly beyond the traditional environmental usage of the word. Sustainability is more than just an environmental term but rather viewed as a wider concept that works towards a gender sensitive definition and includes an analysis of patriarchy, women’s oppression, and gender inequality. The House of African Feminisms is also interested in projects that investigate the sustainability of the African feminist movement as a whole and its contribution to their societies.
The HoAF is looking for written works, photographic essays, reportages, short films, video works, visual or audio documentaries and podcasts that question/engage sustainability in an African feminist context.
