About the Carnival of Consciousness, Afropunk says:

You can call AFROPUNK’s Carnival of Consciousness a festival if you want — but that wouldn’t be exactly right, at least not by the definitions of “festival” developed over the last decade. Is it a conference, retreat, salon, seminar, a rave- a happening, think-tank, a maneuver? Yes, to all of the above. We prefer to think of the Carnival as a new type of open cultural space and gathering of like-minded people.

The Carnival of Consciousness is a weekend-long congregation of producers, supporters, allies and consumers of black culture that will feature a schedule of music, art, film, lectures and the honest expression of youthful black concerns, by the leading contemporary

Tickets to the Carnival of Consciousness are on sale now, and there's also an earned ticket program where you can earn tickets through volunteer work.

The Brooklyn edition of Afropunk Fest is this weekend (8/25-8/26) at Commodore Barry Park. Stay tuned for the set times.
