Sunday 04 September 2016 16:00

+ discussion with Eliza Anyangwe, journalist and founder of The Nzinga Effect, Johny Pitts, founder of Afropean, and Gabrielle Smith, founder of The:nublk

Part-documentary, part-e-zine, this screening covers music, performance art and other taste-makers from Africa.

Africa’s future is happening now. On the cusp of an historical shift brought on by technology and economic development, creative movements are thriving. Part-documentary, part-e-zine, this dynamic series visits cultural hubs and artists in Ghana, Senegal, Côte d’Ivoire and Angola who are producing real and challenging images of Africa. Afripedia contributors include: outspoken androgynous musician Wiyaala; extraordinary trick-bikers Bikelordz; performance artist and illustrator Serge Attukwei Clottey; Titica, a trans superstar and Nástio Mosquito – the mavericks behind Kuduro (Angolan electro music). Senegal and Côte d’Ivoire are represented in the eyes of photographer Omar Victor Diop, afrofuturist fashion designer Selly Raby Kane and beatsmith Fanny.

Select tickets available for Africa Utopia wristband holders.
