FUND MY COMMUNITY: Salt Magazine
Afrikarts Australia has recently applied for a grant to assist in the production of local African-Australian News Magazine – Salt Magazine.
Salt Magazine has published 6 issues over the past 18 months, largely thanks to a team of hard working volunteers.
But Afrikarts wants to help take Salt Magazine to the next level.
So we’ve put in an application for the SA Government’s grant scheme, Fund My Community.
And we need your help to make it happen!
All you need to do is join up on the Fund My Community website and vote for us!
