From the Organizer
AFRIKIN® (pronounced ah • free • kin) is a platform that elevates global art and culture. As the community of creatives, friends, healers, hopeful people, innovators, lovers of good things, patrons and scientists advance in their ingenuity while journeying toward the promise of a good future – AFRIKIN® assists in crafting and documenting this historic narrative -- without the limitations of bias. The term AFRIKIN® is the fusion of two words -- “Africa (the continent) and Kinship (a sharing of characteristics or origins)”. AFRIKIN® was created as a platform for the sharing of positive global experiences with a diverse population. AFRIKIN® presents current culture recognized by our target demographics through AFRIKIN® Art, AFRIKIN® Fashion, AFRIKIN® Talks, food, innovation and performance - ways to experience the lives and perspectives of our brothers and sisters, our AFRIKIN®, across the Diaspora. Together we work to raise awareness and provide solutions. We inform, empower and inspire people to take the next step to raise the profile of the Diaspora. The transformative effect of creative people on societal progress has been a motivating factor in our programming.
