2017 applications open Sept. 1-30!
The theme for 2017 is: ecologies. In 2017, the Center for Afrofuturist Studies is calling for artists and writers of color, across all media, whose work engages with the study of environment, of one’s ‘home,’ of the ways one ‘makes space’ in this world or in other worlds.
