The AfroFuturist Affair is having its 2nd Charity & Costume Ball this upcoming November 2012. Proceeds from the Ball will be used for the Futurist Fund, a small scholarship awarded to serve the needs of members of under-served communities. We are calling out for AfroFuturists to perform, vend, or display their sci-fi , spec-fic, and Afrofuturistic themed work and pieces at the Ball.
We are looking for:
- - Authors
- - Poets
- - Inventors
- - Vocalists
- - Rappers
- - Visual artists
- - Live artists
- - Filmmakers
- - Dancers
- - Designers
- - Musicians
- - Vendors
- - Sponsors
- - Volunteers
- - Any other creative type not named above
The theme for the Charity & Costume Ball will be the Museum of Time, so we also appreciate works that can incorporate this theme, however you interpret it. The Ball is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, November 3, 2012 at a TBD location in Philadelphia.
To share your ideas, talents, and proposed performances for inclusion in this year’s Charity & Costume Ball, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by September 10, 2012 with the below info, and “Charity Ball” in the subject line.

We’ll review all submissions and get back to you by September 20, 2012, along with the confirmed date and location.
If you are interested in sponsoring, vending, or volunteering, please submit an email to email@example.com. We are able to offer promotion and advertisement space to all sponsors. Vendors will be charged a low registration fee of $15 dollars.
*Please note that the mission of The AfroFuturist Affair is one of service to strengthen communities. All proceeds from the Charity & Costume Ball will be used to fund a scholarship for an underserved member of the community in need of assistance. We will likely not be able to compensate performers for their time (with very limited exceptions); however, this is an opportunity to be a part of an exciting project, meet a lot of other artists, musicians, and performers, and gain exposure to a diverse audience. The show will be widely advertised and documented, and all artists, authors, and performers will be treated like the stars that they are.
