The mission this time, should you wish to take it on, is to travel further into the darkness of space, to take on the longest journey into the depths of Self.
On the way we will be engaging art in a fully immersive atmosphere. Sound, touch, taste and even the very air around us will be our fuel and life support system.
The self training will take the form of several workshops based in arts and crafts as well as discussions, poetry and performance. A lot of this will be hands on work. This will go from what has been to what CAN be.
Life throws up many obstacles and for those on the lower rungs of society’s ladder it can be that we are expected to never rise above the limitations placed upon us. Since inception, Hip Hop has allowed for that rise and has even helped spark and sustain multi-million pound companies that help others overcome hardships.
Black holes have enough gravity that nothing, not even light, can escape their pull. We at AfroFlux are providing a way through those black holes of life that can bring us down.
Where and when possible the traveler will be able to navigate black wholes and come out the other side relatively unscathed. To steer the craft (even in the digital age) our hands will need to get dirty. In the year 2000, Socialist Rap group, Dead Prez, declared “Let’s Get Free!”.
This year, AfroFlux, will not only be ‘putting on’ events but encouraging others to participate on their own journeys so that we can all move together to get to where ever we need to. Through a use of various arts and the movements within the true essence of Hip Hop, we can ALL get free.
