The STARTS Prize Africa 2024

The S+T+ARTS yearly competition is back to award two innovative projects at the nexus of science, technology, and the arts that have what it takes to make a significant impact on economic and social innovation.

The STARTS Prize Africa recognizes projects that use creativity to drive positive change and highlights examples of collaborations between individuals, collectives, and organizations from diverse sectors. We are especially interested in projects that focus on societal challenges and promote sustainable practices on the continent.
