The AfroFuturist Affair is a community formed to celebrate, strengthen, and promote Afrofuturistic and Black Scifi culture through creative events and creative writing.
The Afrofuturist Affair has a correlative mission of using the proceeds from our events to fund a $500 community grant. The grant, known as The Futurist Fund will be dedicated to serving the needs of members of an under-served community annually.


The AfroFuturist Affair tumblr provides friends, supporters, historians, and aliens with archives on the first event, updates on Afro-future events, present goings-ons, and to exchange language, images, memories, notes, and energies with other Futurists across cyberspace/time. We practice and revere Ancient Wisdom, Mythology, Liberation, History, Future, Metaphysics, Sacred Math, Prophecy, Science, Trippy, Music, Gods, Art. Anything that one could use as a tool to survive yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

SPACES: Spacemaking Artist-in-Residence Program Request for Proposals! 
Beginning January 15, 2014, The Village of Arts and Humanities (based in North Philadelphia) requests proposals from individuals and collectives, for two, four-month artist residencies in cycle one of SPACES: Artist Residency at The Village.
Through SPACES, youth and families in North Central Philadelphia collaborate with resident artists to explore how the process of sharing artistic practice and engaging in meaningful exchanges of information within a community, can nurture the creation of SPACE—space to create, to dream, to build, and to transform physical landscapes.
SPACES artists will live in creatively renovated row homes in The Village Heart, a four square block area consisting of 14 art parks and nine program buildings, all woven into the existing residential and commercial fabric of the neighborhood. During each residency, artists will engage with community members through informal and Village facilitated dialogue, programs, apprenticeships, or workshops, to design and execute an original, transformative project rooted in art, born from the artists’ relationships with the community, and realized in partnership with community members.
Residency is for emerging and mid-career individual artists and collectives across a wide discipline of arts.  Artists will also be rewarded $10,000 as part of the residency. For more information, visit Village Arts and email artsresidency@villagearts.org. Proposals due Feb. 28.
