Save the date for the Wildseeds #BlackFuturesFest going on in New Orleans from May 28th-31st!

The Black Futures Fest is a celebration of the Black fantastic and will showcase the creative praxis of artists, writers, and cultural workers of color in New Orleans whose work engages around issues of Afrofuturism, Black science fiction, and the Black radical and speculative imaginationβ€”work exploring race, gender, class, social change, and the future of Black and Brown bodies and communities.

Open to the public, the weekend of festivities will feature film screenings, workshops, panel discussions, literary readings, and art and music by local artists and musicians. More than anything, the festival will provide a space to celebrate Black and Brown artists, writers, teachers, librarians, readers, and publishers engaged in shaping the future of Black people at the intersections of futurism, arts, and social change.
