AFROPUNK’s Battle of the Bands is the first expression of mentorship, support and encouragement in the creative community. It is a competition in which new artists play for the chance to perform at AFROPUNK events and on its festival stages.
The SPINTHRIFT Market showcases and celebrates the best of Paris’s maker community. For the DIY-minded, an array of one-of-a-kind and bespoke items inspired by African art and textiles. Jewelry, natural beauty products, apparel, housewares, books, prints, and more.
AFROPUNK is an influential community of young, gifted people of all backgrounds who speak through music, art, film, comedy, fashion and more. Originating with the 2003 documentary that highlighted a Black presence in the American punk scene, it is a platform for the alternative and experimental. Remaining at the core of its mission are the punk principles of DIY aesthetics, radical thought and social non-conformity. AFROPUNK is a voice for the unwritten, unwelcome and unheard-of. AFROPUNK is defining culture!
