An Afrofuturistic NYE Event

Escape the norm!
AFROTOPIA NYE is a unique New Year's Eve celebration tailored for those who want a deeper vibe than the normal club experience offers. There will be none of the usual radio tunes, no VIP sections or bottle service. What will be offered is a selection of eclectic tunes curated by DJ KEMIT (Spread Love, Honeycomb Music) & SALAH ANANSE (Afrique Electrique), handcrafted cocktails, fresh tapas & an aesthetically pleasing dance space provided by Studio No. 7 | Bar + Lounge. AFROTOPIA NYE is about celebrating the art, culture & style of the African diaspora.

A portion of the proceeds from AfrotopiaNYE will also go to support the Detroit based non-profit AFROTOPIA which uses Afrofuturism as inspiration for transformative education for youth. Learn more further down & at:

More about the not-for profit AFROTOPIA:

AFROTOPIA is simultaneously an idea, a place, and a project.

The idea revolves around creating imaginative and effective solutions to address social challenges. The root of the idea is planted in Afrofuturism, a contemporary arts movement encompassing sound, literature, the culinary arts, and science. By fusing elements of science fiction, magical realism, ancient history, and non-western cosmologies, Afrofuturism serves as an invitation to actively create tomorrow and consciously control destiny. AFROTOPIA, the idea, deconstructs the elements of Afrofuturism and from those pieces builds and explores new and radical notions of what utopia is and can be.

AFROTOPIA, the place, is constantly being created, altered, and augmented. At its core, AFROTOPIA is the physical manifestation of Afrofuturistic philosophy. Time, space, and being flow together and mix in AFROTOPIA blurring the lines between the familiar and the exotic. Visitors to AFROTOPIA should enter with an open mind.

AFROTOPIA, the project includes workshops for youth, film screenings and exhibitions.
