About this event

Afrofuturism Themed Digital Art Show, Panel Discussion, and After Dark Celebration

Digital Art Show

After a fun filled, celebratory day, golfers and community meet up in the evening for an Afrofuturism themed art show. Most of the artwork will display on a digital platform. All of the featured artists have ties with the local community.

Panel Discussion and After Dark Celebration

Local civic and community leaders, artists, and visionaries discuss historical and current issues facing the local Black community. Simultaneously, the panel will explore how to reimagine the concept of Blackness, Black identity, and culture in a future space.

After the panel discussion, during the After Dark Celebration, emerging music producers exhibit their latest creations on the main stage, while DJs spin multi-genre music from multiple decades on different stages. The evening includes food trucks, drinks, and plenty of socializing, reflection, and future thought.

The Digital Art Show and After Dark Celebration are free with registration. Register here: https://linktr.ee/atcfestivals

About Juneteenth

Juneteenth is a holiday celebrated on 19 June to commemorate the emancipation of enslaved people in the US. The holiday was first celebrated in Texas, where on that date in 1865, in the aftermath of the Civil War, slaves were declared free under the terms of the 1862 Emancipation Proclamation.

About Afrofuturism

Afrofuturism is a cultural aesthetic that combines science-fiction, history and fantasy to explore the African American experience and aims to connect those from the black diaspora with their forgotten African ancestry.
