Berlin! 11.08.2018 – EmpowAIR Festival

Empower is an afro-futurist and queer-feminist community platform with film, electronic music and art by queer people of colour. EmpowAIR is a collaboration between Empower and UK based curator Jumoke Fernandez, taking place on 11 August 2018 in the GlogauAIR art space in Berlin-Kreuzberg. Empower parties are about freedom of expression in any form, giving protagonism to minority groups and letting them tell their own stories. They combine electronic music events with documentary filmmaking, focusing on queer, trans*, gender non-conforming people of colour.

EmpowAIR will take the form of a one-day music, performance and digital art festival, starting with a
– food ritual; followed by
– internet rituals;
– one panel discussion on femininity and femmephobia;
– a digital art exhibition from the Middle-East;
– sustainable fashion workshop and
– augmented reality fashion workshop;
– 7 music shows by female identifying artists as well as
– a voguing flash workshop
