Garner attention from key players in the industry

When you speak at AfroAnimation you’ll be talking to a growing audience of eager students, rising creative talents, independent professional creators, illustrators, gamers, award-winning producers, directors, studio executives, agents, technology pioneers, and C-suite decision makers. This will be a chance for you to tell your story, showcase your expertise and personal projects, share ideas and insight, network with industry peers, and make valuable connections.

Be a part of an A-list lineup

We are reaching out to Hollywood movie studios, national cartoon television networks, comic book companies, game developers, technology companies, top illustrators, animation schools and organizations and brands. Our goal is to leave no stone unturned in our approach to understanding how we can help solve inclusion challenges. Our overriding objective, of course, is to increase the black/brown/African creative talent pipeline across the industry as a whole.

Each AfroAnimation panel will host 2-3 speakers at a time. There will be one moderator and panel discussions will be limited to 60 minutes. We will also offer both closed and open workshops taught by some of the most experienced professionals in the industry. Where you’ll fit in is sharing with attendees your knowledge, experience and expertise.

We offer company exposure and engagement

While there will be manifold opportunities for exposure and engagement, the entire AfroAnimation event will be a platform to help you increase your reach and connections. It will be the place in 2021 to collaborate and drive meaningful change in the animation industry as a whole and specifically the Afro animator segment.
