Description

ABOUT:

AFRIKIN® is a platform that curates the arts and culture of people of color, as we advance their ingenuity and promise across the Diaspora.

While we emphasize the promise of the African diaspora, we recognize our responsibility to the world: To better the lives of others and the communities we serve. AFRIKIN® Fest will inspire you to do the same.

Proceeds from AFRIKIN® will benefit Hurricane Matthew relief efforts to Haiti and Give Me Dignity, an organization that raises awareness about Childhood Sexual Abuse (CSA).

Children under 9 years of age are FREE :-)

** A New Standard **
What will set AFRIKIN® Fest apart from other mainstream and traditional festivals is that AFRIKIN® Fest will highlight the ingenuity, economic, and social opportunity of people of color across the African diaspora. The Festival will place an importance on the following components:

INNOVATION
We’re inviting trailblazers and up-and-comers of the continent and the diaspora who have identified gaps in the market, developed solutions, have a presence in the marketplace and are ready to present their ideas to investors to take them to the next level.

TALKS
AFRIKIN® “Talks” will be held during the daytime on both Friday and Saturday of the Festival. The goals of AFRIKIN® Talks is to inform, empower, and share human and capital resources with festival goers who represent or are interested in the following industries: Activism/Social Justice, Arts and Culture, Business, Education, Health, Media, Technology and Women’s Issues.

EXHIBITIONS
AFRIKIN® will host a platform for innovators to gain exposure and connect with leaders in various industries. Through our exhibitions, we’ll encourage collaborations between influencers and emerging ingénues. Exhibitions include but are not limited to: Afrofuturism, art installations, drum and dance workshops, wine and rum tastings, and startup business spotlights.

MUSIC
Evenings are dedicated to AFRIKIN® Music Fest, which will showcase the most influential and celebrated musical acts of the African diaspora. The acts represent various countries of the diaspora and will perform on two stages throughout the three nights of the festival.

FOOD
We won’t just provide food for sustenance. We’re creating an experience that will rival any food festival and wine tasting. We’re curating the finest in African cuisines that will be available to event patrons at AFRIKIN® Fest’s full-service pop-up restaurants, with a setup that will be reminiscent of Miami’s famous Lincoln Road “restaurant row” style cafes. AFRIKIN® Fest will also offer a wine and rum tasting experience sponsored by beverage companies that represent the diaspora.
