In this interview, the multidisciplinary artist talks about her project The Afrofuturist Village as a converging point for the ideas and motivations that lie at the heart of her art-activist work.

It’s been a little over a year since writer, photographer and activist, Masiyaleti Mbewe, held her debut solo exhibition, The Afrofuturist Village.

She is currently conceptualizing the projects’ next iteration, and in this interview with Accra-based writer Moshood, she talked about The Afrofuturist Village as a converging point for the ideas and motivations that lie at the heart of her art-activist work: futurism, queer activism, pan-Africanism, African spirituality, and more.
