Vibrant Canvas is the world told by African women, created and founded in their experiences.
In 2019, AWDF granted more money to women’s organisations than in any previous years, and we supported the largest number of grantees in our herstory, strengthening their organisations’ systems, skills and cultures. We convened, produced and shared knowledge, hosted artists and claimed power in a chorus of feminist voices. We stretched across Africa – North, South, East and West, and further into the Middle East. We grew, in scale and scope. We saw and created change in process and outcome.
For AWDF, 2019 meant expansion with connection, it meant a deepening of the work for equality and justice and an engagement in the interconnected realities of womanhood. AWDF and its partners gathered the pieces, collected colour, stretched the canvas and painted for the telling of a story. We revealed a world, and created new designs in glimpses into the world of the future.
Vibrant canvas is a look into the world made by African feminists over the course of 365 days in 2019.
