Camille Turner's Afronautic Research Lab

Heritage Hall Guelph, Ontario

Multi/Interdisciplinary, Multicultural — Other, Talks and Discussion

The Afronauts are coming to Heritage Hall, 83 Essex Street, on Saturday September 29, 2018 from 12pm to 5pm.

The Afronauts are descendants of the Dogon people of Mali. Their mandate is to save the planet by tackling one issue at a time. Currently, they are confronting Canada’s historical amnesia and anti-Black racism. The Afronauts will be present in Guelph soon and welcome your contributions and participation in their labs focused on this region.

Born in Jamaica and based in Toronto, Camille Turner is an explorer of race, space, home and belonging. She is the founder of Outerregion, an afrofuturist performance company. Her interventions, installations and public engagements combine Afrofuturism and historical research.
