Our borough is home to major and still growing populations from various countries inAfrica. Their vital presence influences and transforms our city. BRONX:AFRICA is a multi-disciplinary exploration of the art, expressions and influences of Africancultures, and their impact on the arts as nationals mix and infuse. BRONX:AFRICAcelebrates the influence of contemporary African cultures that strengthens and connects us with the many peoples of African descent, the diaspora, mixed heritage and migration-dispersion that call the Bronx home.
