kickstarter campaign COMPLETED
thank you to all our backers!
From April 9-May 10, 2017 we successfully launched and completed a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to raise money for production costs such as artist fees, equipment, insurance, security and more venues. We have produced the festival over the last 4 years with very few sponsors and these costs are always challenging. CHECK OUT THE CAMPAIGN HERE: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1912889897/the-afro-latino-festival-nyc-2017-5th-edition
Since this is a community event we decided what better way to get the community involved. This is more than a Festival, this is an opportunity to highlight and celebrate identity in a time when we have been told to hide in fear. Now more than ever we must come together to boldly affirm, educate and celebrate the similarities and differences in our heritage and histories.
This year's Tribute to Women will make you proud you made this commitment. Over two days we will talk, laugh, cry, dance, eat, sing, dance some more. And when its done we hope everyone comes away with a new or renewed sense of community, solidarity, activism, pride and love.
Regular tickets are now on sale. If you missed the Kickstarter campaign please dont be discouraged. Get your tickets now at the Tickets section of the site. Get involved, tell your friends, families, neighbors and strangers in the street.
