Afrotectopia is creating a community of Black innovators and building social impact.

Afrotectopia began as a new media arts, culture and technology festival - holding our inaugural event at New York University's Interactive Telecommunications Graduate Program (ITP). The event was created and produced by ITP student, Ari Melenciano, and co-organized by students and faculty at NYU.

With an incredibly well received inaugural festival, Afrotectopia is looking to expand to other cities and host smaller scaled events in New York City. We have a handful of other exciting ideas we would like to develop, as well. But, before we can do anything, we need funding to be able to expand and bring the Afrotectopia experience to many more people outside of New York City.
