What we do at MUD Journal:

MUD is not a personal Journal —– it is a mirror of NEW Africa’s heritage.  We make videos, write articles, compile photobooks,  and make playlists -amongst other things. We do not distinguish between high (elite or arty) culture and low (mass or ‘pop’) culture, new or old, everything is MUD! You can build a home with it or sling it in someone’s face – either way, it’s useful.  We seek to share innovative and original thinking that fosters new ways of exploring the African experience. MUD stops, thinks and reflects – what is it that makes us AFRICAN TODAY?
