In the spirit of Octavia Butler, Steven Barnes, Tananarive Due, Nnedi Okorafor, Nora K. Jemisin, and adrienne maree brown's Emergent Strategy,
Firyali Visions, the WorldBeat Center, QABPROSERV.COM and The Broker's Building Gallery brings an exclusive AfroFuturist programming block for the spring and summer seasons.
This spring in June at Broker's Building in the Gaslamp District will be held the AfroFuturism: #DreamTank2018. With an assembly of Pan African visionaries we'll orchestrate a brainstorm of where we see ourselves in the near and distant futures. Exploring technology, sociology, design and art we'll compile a series of presentations in an effort to realize an Afrotopia that will enrich ourselves with beauty, prosperity and hope as well as the world.
Then following in the summer, coinciding with San Diego International Comic Con, we'll host a AfroFuturism Lounge from 7pm = 11pm Friday, July 20th and Saturday, July 21st. This event will be open to vendors and attendees to see the newest independent creations of the African Diaspora. More about the Afrofuturism Lounge coming soon but please believe we are already beginning to prepare for AfroFuturism: #DreamTank2019!
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for more info on registration, participation and fees for either event.
