What we're about
AFRIKIN® (pronounced ă FREE kin) is a platform for presenting arts programming. It was born from the concept of Africa plus kinship as a foundation for people of color to show who we really are. People of all colors need to be true to themselves, and each other, without social constructs.
AFRIKIN® is a collaborative arts platform, facilitator of the musing, creative and free spirit of world culture and catalyst of the “Boheme Effect”. AFRIKIN® demonstrates a sound strategy of managed growth in presenting ‘conscious’ global content in the arts.
Our platform is modular, scalable and utilizes resources in an insightful and responsible way. We have created a new narrative – a discourse that redefines the Black aesthetic. AFRIKIN® is culture perfected. For AFRIKIN®, the transformative effect of creative people on societal progress is a key feature and motivating factor towards advancing the ingenuity and promise of people of color through the arts.
The AFRIKIN® programming platform brings multiple demographics together in one model comprised of ‘Baby Boomers’ and ‘Millennials’.
This intergenerational and multicultural audience includes influencers and innovators who are actively seeking cultural programming and creative perceptual experiences.
AFRIKIN® presents desirable content for this multiple demographic totaling over 2.3 billion people from the four corners of the earth. We transmit the current culture recognized by our target demographics through AFRIKIN® Art, AFRIKIN® Fashion, AFRIKIN® Talks, food, innovation and performance – providing room for our branding partners to receive a positive response to their corporate presence.
The world’s African origins bind us together in kinship, stemming from one root geographical source point. Scientists have long known that humans originated in Africa. Acknowledgement of this reality called for the creation of AFRIKIN®. The creation of this arts platform provides benefits for artists, audiences, patrons and sponsors. This is achieved through the creation of progressive programming and the combining of multiple demographics to yield research data that can be directed into productive outlets.
Afrikin is a celebration of history, culture, people – us. Through music, talks, exhibitions, and food, we’ll highlight the ingenuity, economic, and social opportunities of Africa and the African diaspora.
With innovation at the forefront, all are welcome as we advance the future in business, the arts, social activism, and more!
