In the project 'Wiaspora Proverbs: Visual Mixtapes of Truth' Simone Zeefuik and Richard Kofi will record a series of podcasts in the Bijlmer Parktheater. The term 'wiaspora' started by Zeefuik and Kofi is a fusion of the words 'wi', which means 'we' in several Afro-Caribbean languages, and 'diaspora'. It sums up what is central to this series of conversations: bringing together and being Afro-Dutch makers, researchers, teachers, social workers, writers and other opinion makers. Together they will discuss the representation of the Afro-Dutch community in cultural museums and institutions, public space, popular culture and films. The discussions centre on both tangible and intangible heritage. Zeefuik and Kofi intend the project to grow into a platform for art criticism and cultural production in 2021. The programme will be developed and implemented out of the Bijlmer Parktheater.
