#AfrikanCreate is a free online volunteer platform for African Creatives to share ideas and collaborate on relief projects for addressing COVID-19 challenges on the continent.
The projects created by volunteers on this platform will be used in campaigns where the aim is to provide messages of hope to affected communities and echo messages of encouragement to the people that are working in the front lines facing the pandemic head on. Of course other people may want to share their creative perspective on what is happening around them, this is welcome too, as long as it raises awareness or education about the pandemic to make the situation slightly more bearable.
We are calling on All creatives to think of solutions, create projects, and share their skills with others in order to help fight negative feelings and emotions by using their skills in sound, color, or spoken word projects.
