We develop a new sense of life when it comes to uplifting others, and we recognize that we have a great responsibility to contribute to our communities. As lovers of the arts and culture, we felt the need to do something different than the usual music and arts festival. This is where the concept for AFRIKIN® came about.
The African Diaspora populations, especially in the US and the Caribbean seem to hold different identities with Africa and with blackness. We must create a new gaze from the person to the collective. Band, tribe, nation, planet. Healing Our Nation must begin with oneself. We all have histories.
AFRIKIN®: Healing the Nation kicks off during Black History Month, and will be held on February 18th at Sixty10 in Miami. Our goal is to utilize the arts to open up the conversation about issues that affect the African diaspora such as economic development, social justice, and education.
AFRIKIN® is an event and symposium that celebrates the ingenuity, economic, and social opportunities of the diaspora. If you have been following our social media channels, you have heard it all: It will be a festival that sets a new standard, it will be one for the books, and AFRIKIN® is not just another music festival.
