A-L-K-È-B-UU-L-A-N

Alkebulan, is one of the oldest names given by our ancestors for the continent that we now know as Africa. The name Alkebulan symbolizes going back to your roots. Alkebulan stands for a more self-conscious Africa that will not settle for being just a charity case.

ABOUT ALKEBULAN

Alkebulan is a multidisciplinary network organization (community) in which creatives, with both an African (ancestry) and a Western background, have joined forces to deepen and research their African heritage. The implementation of the various collaborations will be exhibited under an umbrella platform, Alkebulan.

THE PROJECT

Alkebulan is a project of a group of young creatives with roots in different parts of the African diaspora. Whether you are Afropean, Colombian, Indonesian or Afro American, we all share a desire to deepen the heritage and create a platform for our (African) culture that is often seen as ‘other’, which is now rarely seen and heard. The Alkebulan project consists of musicians, artists, writers and speakers from all over the world.

GOAL & MISSION

The first and second generation from migrants have become more and more in tune with their culture through music, fashion, art and literature. This results in a subculture that contradicts the usual image of Africa, its diaspora and the culture. In a short time it has become part of popculture. But there are still prejudices about the continent and its Diaspora. Many of these artists remain unknown to the media and the rest of the world. Alkebulan wants to change that. Our main goal is to change perception and to change negative prejudices to positive images. We stand for culture participation, integration, changes perception, researching share and teach about people of color culture.
