Frequently Asked Questions

Here are a few answers to our most common event questions

Is The Afro Kawaii Experience for me?

Do you identify as Black? Are you wanting to see and connect with more Black alternative representation? Are you interested in learning more about the movement, community and/ or future of events? If you answered yes to any of these questions, this experience is made for you. I AM ME, though Black-centered, is open to all who wish to join — no matter your race, color or creed. We encourage Black people to take up space and welcome others to learn about our experience within largely non-Black subcultures and spaces.

What if I can’t make, or have to miss part of the event?

No problem, we know life can get busy. You’re free to come and go as you please, though we hope you’ll make time to take in as much from this packed programming as you can in the few hours we'll be gathered. All discussions will be archived for on-demand viewing after the summit.
