New Narratives (working title) aims to help contribute to changing reciprocal perceptions between Africa and the UK to stimulate new understanding which will unlock new connections and collaborations for mutual benefit.

The New Narratives Pilot is supported by the British Council and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and and will be delivered by CcHUB and Beatfreeks Collective. The programme pilot will bring together 40 young people from Africa and the UK in two residential workshops to co-create and develop solutions that can contribute to thinking around the planned programme.

At the Kigali (Africa) and Birmingham (United Kingdom) residential workshops, the participants will be supported to come up with solutions that contribute to changing the narrative between Africa and the UK and showcase these solutions at the Kigali and Birmingham public events to young people, stakeholders, the general public and partners.
