From The New School

Advisor on Alhamdu

Please to announce I'm an advisor on Alhamdu, which:

is an experiential arts project created by MIPSTERZ that explores Muslim Futurism—a cultural and artistic aesthetic that builds on Afrofuturist works to reimagine an American Muslim future free from the confines of the majority culture.

Excited to see this project develop.
