About New Narratives
New Narratives is a five-year programme which aims to build new and stronger connections between young people across the countries of Africa and the UK - it aims to contribute to updating the narrative, stimulating dialogue around arts, culture and education.

- Share personal narratives of inspiring young people and their career paths.
- Stimulate debate around stereotypes and outdated narratives between the UK and Africa.
- Feed into a range of subject areas including history, geography and media studies.
