TIMES HAVE CHANGED
This started off as a passion project in 2009 which I thought I would get over after 6 months, but it didn't. For years I slaved away during uni to document a narrative which I craved to see. A narrative featuring creatives from the African community in Australia and glimpses of the creatives in the diaspora as well. Writing wasn't my forte, yet I sourced and wrote content since it was the only way at the time I could document this narrative.
Then Instagram came...
Life got in the way, I finished uni, Instagram came and everyone had a platform to display their creative talents. Blogs weren't the same. I felt like Afroklectic had run it's course, so I left it.
I contemplated deleting it, but I couldn't let go of it. I couldn't let go of the history which had been documented.
So here we are
trying to maintain what was
Reviving Afroklectic in a different way. The Afroklectic Archive captures creative narratives of Africans in Australia from 2009 - 2019.
Enjoy the history
