Afropean Culture Online Space

Afropean

Looking for a platform that celebrates and promotes Afro-diasporic perspectives? We have just the online space in store! Through the virtual grapevine, ERIF has recently come across Afropean, an online space dedicated to the beauty, complexity and diversity of black culture(s) in Europe, providing a timely counter-narrative to over-simplified and potentially harmful depictions of black life across the continent.

The web-space explored personal narratives, imagery and popular cultural references in order to create a visually enticing online archive that exposes viewers to film, music, fashion and art that speaks to communities descended from the African continent but who are also indisputably European.
