The ZAM-net Foundation (‘ZAM’) was established in 2007. We are a non-profit platform based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. We build and maintain a network of more than 1200 creatives in (investigative) journalism, photography, the arts, and opinion in African countries and the diaspora. We offer their stories, productions and creations to international audiences via our media channels, in events and collaborations. This is how we bridge the gap between ‘here’ and ‘there’ and contribute to the dissemination of perspectives and insights in often complex realities.
