'Afropean. Here was a space where blackness was taking part in shaping European identity ... A continent of Algerian flea markets, Surinamese shamanism, German Reggae and Moorish castles. Yes, all this was part of Europe too ... With my brown skin and my British passport - still a ticket into mainland Europe at the time of writing - I set out in search of the Afropeans, on a cold October morning.' 

Looking B(l)ack: Travel Symposium FULL programme (Zap Mama, Caryl Phillips, LKJ & more) this weekend.

A weekend of talks and performances dedicated to the notion of Black Travel, curated by Johny Pitts, TV host and author of the forthcoming publication ‘Afropean: Documenting Black Europe’.

Within the general notion of travelling, we will look to complicate an area overly hinged on white, masculine, heteronormative experiences, and celebrate the gaze of a diverse group of travelers who are often ignored.
