Thought this would be interesting for us to check out. Regisiter here. It's free but you have to go through process of buying a ticket to register, no payment needed.. Here's the description from the MCA:
How do collaboratives created by cultural practitioners of African descent provide new perceptions, understandings, and forms of practice? This conference brings together key individuals from around the globe, including Otolith Group cofounder Kodwo Eshun, artists Theaster Gates and Rick Lowe, musician George Lewis, and Tate.
