Metropolarity

METROPOLARITY was born in a pixelated summer, desperate for a space where technology and community could intersect. We at Metropolarity believe that those without power must take advantage and control of the media outlets that we have access to. We choose science fiction as our lens to create new worlds, identities, self paradigms, and to destroy old, harmful ones. The AfroFuturist Affair Creative Director Rasheedah Phillips is 1/4 of the founding members of Metropolarity, in addition to Alex Smith, Ras Masramani, and Maggie Eighteen.
