1st AfroFuturism: Dream Tank 2018
June 1st - 3rd, 2018

The Dream Tank is a think tank for people who want to be proactive and solution oriented towards realizing the dreams we have for our future as children of the African continent and diaspora, as well as generations to come. In the spirit of Sankofa, let's reconnect our past, present and future with attitudes, behaviors, and choices that are in the interest of Black wellness. This gathering of creative and critical thinkers build upon prior processes of dreaming the world we’d like to realize in the future so we can reverse engineer and build it.

The NEXT Afrofuturism Dream Tank is going to take place Monday, March 20, 2023
