Event Details

Decentralizing Power is a workshop to reimagine economic systems through an Afrofuturist lens with Ingrid LaFleur from Detroit (USA). Taking a hyper-local approach, participants will explore tools such as blockchain technology, cryptocurrency, and cooperative economics to develop economic strategies that empower their communities. Through the workshop, we will be exploring our relationship to money and begin to outline a community-developed economy.

Ingrid LaFleur is a curator, pleasure activist and Afrofuturist. Her mission is to ensure equal distribution of the future, exploring the frontiers of social justice through new technologies, economies and modes of government. As a recent Detroit Mayoral candidate and founder and director of AFROTOPIA, LaFleur implements Afrofuturist strategies to empower Black bodies and oppressed communities through frameworks such as blockchain and universal basic income. Ingrid LaFleur is currently the Social Impact Advisor for Detroit Blockchain Center and curator of Manifest Destiny currently taking place at Library Street Collective in Detroit.


The workshop is open for artists, curators, creative entrepreneurs and everybody interested in the relation between economy, culture and the future.

25 participants max.
