Written by Abiti Nelson, Tatiana Page, Rebecca Corey, graphic design by Vumile Mavumengwana.

The initial MFA curriculum commissioned by the project office was designed by Africa-based practitioners, Abiti Nelson from Uganda, Tatiana Page from South Africa, and Rebecca Corey from Tanzania. The methods and activities explored encourage experimentation with new ways of collecting, researching, mediating, and engaging society. The curriculum was designed to be useful and use-able by institutions across the continent.
