30 April: An Afropean Evening with Johny Pitts

30 April: An Afropean Evening with Johny Pitts

The Forum on European Culture invites the author once more, for a live book presentation of the Dutch translation of 'Afropean'.

What does it mean to be black in today’s Europe? That’s what British writer, photographer and tv-presenter Johny Pitts attempted to find out while travelling the continent back in 2015. He captured his findings in the impressive travelogue Afropean: Notes from Black Europe. Johnny Pitts was a guest at the Forum on European Culture in 2020. Together with De Balie, partner of the Forum, we are hosting an evening to present the Dutch translation of the book: Afropeaan, Notities uit Zwart Europa, on Saturday 30 April.

Together with Johny Pitts, we will immerse ourselves in 'Black Europe' with sounds, words, images and music through the lens of several Dutch artists.
