Iyapo Repository

Saturday, Feb 22

2:00 PM–4:00 PM

Members of the afrofuturist archive Iyapo Repository lead a public workshop.

Iyapo Repository is a resource library that houses a collection of digital and physical artifacts created to affirm and project the future of people of African descent. Named after Lilith Iyapo, a black woman in Octavia Butler’s book series “Lilith’s Brood,” who is the last semblance of the human race, Iyapo Repository archives manuscripts, films, drawings, rare media and more. Its special collections are created by the cofounders with the help of a collective of other archivists and community members who participate in the duo’s workshops.
