SHIFTING SPACES | TILTING TIMES – Climate, borders, migration, Black Lives Matter, democracy, everything seems to shift and tilt. What we do today will affect our future. Who takes up space, who makes room? Contemporary African artists work at the intersection of these major changes. For them, the great shifts in our world and tilts in our thinking are also a reckoning with the past. To be able to change our way of thinking and our attitude in the present about who we are, who we think we are and maybe who we would like to be. It is the power of change that Afrovibes brings to the front this year with dance, theatre, spoken word, music, fashion and visual arts.
I hope to see you all
