Detroit + Afrofuturism = AFROTOPIA
AFROTOPIA is the synthesis of science fiction, Black history, technology, social change, and enough imaginative power to move a world out of orbit. The concept is based in Detroit but is international in its aesthetic and outreach.
AFROTOPIA is a multifaceted project that includes:
- Film series
- Sigi Fest, spirit science and performance art festival
- DJ-in-residence program
- an archive of Afrofuturist cultural production
- Arts education for youth and adults
- The Institute of Mythocracy
The ultimate goal of AFROTOPIA is to shift the perspective of Detroit into one that imagines the indefinite possibilities for prosperous growth stimulated by the cultural legacy of Black American radical thought and experimentation.
