AFRIKIN: advancing the ingenuity and promise of Africa and the diaspora.
We recognize our responsibility to the world – to better the lives of others and the communities we serve, and our events will inspire others to do the same.
** A New Standard **
What will set Afrikin apart from other mainstream and traditional events is that Afrikin will highlight the ingenuity, economic, and social opportunity of Africa and the African diaspora. The event will place an importance on the following components:
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.
We have a generation of artists who are challenging the status quo through their creativity. Their creations reinforce only the prevailing stereotypes of millennials as tech-savvy, connected, socially conscious and experiential more than materialistic.
The goals of Afrikin Talks is to inform, empower, and share human and capital resources with event 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.
Afrikin will host platforms for innovators to gain exposure and connect with leaders in various industries. Through our exhibitions and workshops, we’ll encourage collaborations between influencers and emerging ingenues, while contributing to the vibrant culture in diverse cities at select locales.
Oh yes, stellar live music experiences will be had. In conjunction with Rockers Movement, the production company that brought you Miami Reggae Festival, Art & Reason, and Bayside Rocks, Afrikin will spotlight a roster of some of the most influential musical heavy hitters from the African diaspora. This, friends, is the new world music.
We won’t just provide food for sustenance. Our culinary Artists offer the finest in African-inspired cuisines at Afrikin events. From South African wine tastings to cooking exhibitions, your conversations will be elevated with the culinary movements of the African diaspora.
