Afrofuturism is a cultural aesthetic that uses the visual language and narrative strategies of sci-fi and fantasy as lenses for gaining fresh insights into black experiences. Afrofuturist creations may be political, fictional, or abstract and take many forms, from books and comics to blogs, music, performance, graphics, and visual art. Afrofuturism is also a forum in which these insights and creations are brought to bear on our collective envisioning of the future.

Afrotechtopia starts with Afrofuturism and probes into the adjoining dimensions of Afrosurrealism and the Ethno-gothic. Afrotechtopia includes artists who use the languages of technology and mythology to rewind the past and set the future spinning.
