Yuniya Khan – The Emerge Project – The Emerge Project

Date grant awarded: April 13, 2018

The Emerge Project is a multimedia storytelling project that highlights a different side to the story: Black entrepreneurs and community leaders using their own resources to drive growth and development at the grassroots level in Johannesburg, South Africa and Salvador, Brazil. This project uses short films, articles, and photography to show real life, “ordinary” Black people creating their own solutions to the challenges in their community.

This project aims to provide a platform for real examples of Black ingenuity, creativity and resilience; to demonstrate what’s working in these communities; and to facilitate meaningful collaboration, partnerships, networks, and other types of support.
