get involved

Nothing in this world is as powerful as the force of human beings committed to a vision. Don’t live your life on the crumbs of others.

get involved with us and get fed!



Are you an artist, performer or a cultural worker of African descent who is interested in digging deep into our theme and sharing work as part of the festival?  Over the year, co-creators will explore this year's theme and co-produce individuals or collective work to be presented at one or more events/venues around the Bay Area (and all over the world online). Tell us who you are!


submit a story

Do you have an image, a journal entry, a story, a song, a thought, or the memory of a conversation that lingers with you? We want to hear it.  You don't have to be a poet or write a novel; We simply want an experience from your life that you carry with you wherever you go or one that you have to dig to remember.



Volunteers are the table on which the spread lays. None of this is possible without them. Our volunteers and interns are the rockstars of the party. As a member of our volunteer team, you can learn new skills, meet new friends, enjoy the amazing events and be a core part of a monumental project.
