A place where space, pyramids, funk and politics collide, Afrofuturism is one of the most imaginative ways of re-defining and re-imagining black identity in the past, present, and the future. Get up to get down and discover a world where today's boundaries blur into insignificance!
You the brilliant Bristol public have helped shape us into a Sci Fi wonderland this weekend. Join us on the Mothershed for a celebration of science, art, and - most importantly - fun. We have activities for the whole family and guess what? They are all entirely FREE!
