Story Lab

The Nzinga Story Lab enables us to put our skills and talents – and those of our wider network of writers, photographers, filmmakers and editor – to use for other organisations. Our work can help challenge narratives, increase visibility, boost confidence in the use of communication tools and connect organisations to audiences.




The British Council’s East Africa Arts programme has been working with Nzinga Effect for 18 months, over this time, Nzinga have both grown with us as an organisation, and ensured we have stretched our vision for communicating beyond what we thought possible. Rocca Holly-Nambi, Head of Arts for Kenya and East Africa


Thank you Nzinga StoryLab for facilitating the social media session of our training for diaspora organisations! Eliza with her experience, energy, vast knowledge of everything digital and practical tips managed to make self-professed reluctant social media users “fall in love” with the medium. The use of pertinent references and examples from Africa and her diaspora made the use of social media more relevant to the participants and really drove home the point that social African activists need to tell their own stories of positive change. We look forward to more collaboration with Nzinga Effect!  Kekeli Kpognon, Head of Diaspora Programme
