AIEJ uses creative tools: art, video, podcast, social and traditional media to devise projects and campaigns to engage with and explore our legacy of untreated trauma and the way it shapes how we love, lead, live, build and break down or break through.
Our aim: reckon, resolve, reimagine
AIEJ often uses anniversaries as our point of intervention or engagement.
This is a multimedia project on African manhood and masculinity. We explore, engage and exchange with African men on reimagining power, reckoning with aggression and unlearning silence. The aim? Create and shape national dialogue on masculinity, shift cultural and mindset norms to grapple with behaviours that normalize violence towards girls and women.
