Black to the Future
Black to the Future is an evening of Afrofuturist readings, featuring an engaging talkback Q&A discussion curated and moderated by Trinidadian-Canadian writer, playwright, filmmaker, and community-engaged artist Fiona Raye Clarke. The evening will begin with readings of Afrofuturist works written by Zymbul Fkara, Sharrae Lyon, and Robyn Citizen. Following the readings, audience members will have the opportunity to engage with each writer through a moderated talkback discussion, allowing for the exchange of ideas, feedback, and dialogue surrounding themes of Afrofuturism, Black futures, and more. The evening will conclude with an open reception where participants will have the opportunity to network, meet the writers, and participate in a drop-in, art-making station.
Black to the Future is presented by East End Arts, in partnership with Neighbourhood Arts Network as part of the 2018 Emergence Symposium
