Imagine a vision of the future in which the stains of our collective past do not paint the present. Imagine a culture unencumbered by the weight of oppressive structures meant to divide and suppress. Imagine a society in which people of color, the African diaspora, are not tokenized or seen as “other”. This is a vision of AFROFUTURISM. A vision of the future in which people of African descent not only have a place in—but are synonymous with—the progress and advancement of the human race. Through art, science, philosophy, and exploration they lead our world forward. It is in this vision we wish to explore what the contributions of the entire body of the human race can yield. It is in this vision that we ask you to create.
Building on the exciting artistic and philosophical legacies of AFROFUTURISM 2019, we invite you to participate in our year-long community-inclusive and collaborative arts and culture programming that runs from April to December 2022.
