The AfroFuturist Affair Annual Charity & Costume Ball
At the annual Ball we celebrate and bring awareness to AfroFuturistic culture with feature artists, authors, and performers who will present works and creations that use Afrofuturism and Sci-Fi as vehicles for expression, education, agency, and liberation. All proceeds from the event are donated to the Futurist Fund.
In 2014, we expanded space-time from one evening to a month-long celebration of Afrofuturism. In addition to the 4th Annual Costume Ball on November 8 2014, we had events throughout November, including workshops, dance party, readings, book club, film screenings, art exhibit, and more, all exploring the theme of Black Holographic Memory.
