Did the Coronavirus pandemic change the format and dates of the Afros & Audio Podcast Festival?
Yes, due to the current pandemic the in-person festival planned for June has been canceled until 2022. Our 2020, 2-Day Global Virtual Summit that took place November 14-15th, 2020 was a great success.
For our 3rd annual conference, scheduled for November 13-14, 2021, we will bring our community of creatives an exciting, innovative, and progressive virtual experience not to be missed on the Whova Virtual Conference Platform. Until then be safe and keep creating! One Love.
Why bring Black Podcast Creators & Audio Professionals together under one roof?
To celebrate where we've been, where we are, and the autonomy we can etch within the Podcast Industry. Audio entertainment and information are the (near) future and Black creatives have an opportunity to define our place within an industry where the soil is fertile and the harvest is plentiful. There are many ways to define our legacy in this industry and Afros and Audio wants to bring as many of us together as possible to strategize on how far we can go as a community of support and collaboration.
