The Palm Wine Collective has postponed Denver’s first Pan-African Arts Festival until August 2021.
Drawing from the inspiration of Ashara Ekundayo, and the Pan African Film Festival, The Palm Wine Collective is proud to curate Denver’s first Pan-African Arts Festival for August 7-9th of 2020. The first day of the festival will be free and open to the public, while the last two days will be ticketed to help cover the costs of production and supporting the curated artists.
This 3-day multi-media (film, visual arts, performing arts, music) futurism planning festival calls specifically for the Black communities of Colorado to convene around thoughtfully curated Black art, engage with upcoming creatives in intimate, inspiring, and generative spaces.
Each day of the festival will center different intersections in Black identity. Festival goers will enjoy installations, workshops, film screenings, performances, and more that all speak to different aspects of the Black experience locally and globally.
This will be a time for Black minds and supporters of Black arts and social empowerment, to create roadmaps for action towards equity and elevation for all Black communities.
The PanAfrican Arts Festival will take place in a few venues in central Denver, CO. These venues, to be officially announced in May 2020, will house the daily experiences and vendor markets. The Palm Wine Collective will be curating artists whose work speaks to the celebration of how Black people have moved and flourished all over the world.
Stay tuned for how you can get involved!
