Rebranding Africa Through Cultural Experiences
Each year, Evrything Africa aims to bring together the U.S.-based pan-African community in the DMV for an entire weekend of cultural exchange.
The purpose of our conference is to find ways to invest back into our native communities and share our varied cultures in ways that will change people's perceptions of Africa and how they respond to it.
Our 3-day event will be held in Washington D.C., home to one of the most diverse African communities in the U.S.
OUR MISSION IS TO
Use the power of cultural experiences to change the narrative about Africa
Provide ways for Pan-Africans to invest in our native communities, whether
monetarily or non-monetarily
Network to create business opportunities and spark ideas

DIASPORA ENGAGEMENT PANEL
This panel brings together leaders in the diaspora communities of DMV and beyond to explore the type of opportunities for diasporas to invest in the economies of our native communities and reverse "brain drain" into "brain gain" - transfer skills and knowledge back to the continent. It covers diverse perspectives in business, communication, philanthropy, entrepreneurship, travel, allyship, sustainability, program development and much more.

CREATIVE CULTURE PANEL
We will discuss topics related to African artists' influences in mass media, how creatives influence culture and policy, and the experiences or challenges that artists have faced in their respective media.
