by: WormAfrofuturism combines avant-garde, science-fiction and other works and reflections from the black diaspora. Afrofuturism is not a new concept; rather it is an active and global movement that covers all artistic disciplines, and wider aspects of culture and activism and is driven by a strong do-it-yourself spirit. WORM has invited one of America’s foremost Afrofuturist artists, activists and thinkers, Rasheedah Phillips (founder of The Afrofuturist Affair to co-curate this unique and exciting event. The festival programme will include speculative workshops, performances, science-fiction readings, films, experimental fashion, video and collage art, dance events and after parties (co-hosted by Pantropical, amongst others) sound art and music from artists such as the celebrated Islam Chipsy and King Britt.
