Pitch Presentation

afronowism ep III
organized by black beyond

Meeting Dates: 6-8 weekly production sessions leading up to a virtual event/workshop. Dates TBD. Virtual event projected for NYE.

Location: Online via Zoom

In afronowism ep III, participants will attend 6-8 weekly production sessions with the black beyond collective leading up to a workshop rooted in Black healing with 1-2 guest facilitators. We will explore the history of sound as technology to preserve and transcend the spirit of ancestors and the indigenous. During the workshop we will gain skills to morph and create sounds for a collective sound piece.

black beyond is a radical platform for artists and activists to speculate alternate realities for Blackness. black beyond disrupts space, allowing Black people and allies to decolonize social infrastructures. It interrogates understandings of Black subjectivity outside the limitations imposed on Blackness by the racist imaginary through: Afropessimism, afronowism, afrofuturism.
