We tell our own stories
A community of creatives with a vision to tell our own stories. Thereby creating new histories, cultures, sciences and economies that speak to us.
We are all about creating artistic events and SME opportunities in the creative sector and driving job creation and employment. Our work involves us partnering with people, companies, artists and innovators that share our beliefs.
Afropolitan Explosiv is a leading provider of artistic events and cutting-edge media based in South Africa. We deliver solutions that work for our communities, using creative approaches: in audiovisual, events, entertainment and panel discussions.
What we believe in

Both these aspects speak to the following needs of creative practitioners in far-flung communities:
The unique feature of our interventions is the format we take of mixing culture + information, which we then take to the communities themselves. As a result the spaces we organize have ranged from Urban Shisanyamas, to Old Age Homes, university campuses, covering diverse communities, with penetrative geographical coverage in terms of South Africa as a whole. Our approach places a lot of emphasis on capturing responses communities make as they are watching film content or listening to speaker presentations and attending workshops. The way they reflect on their experience we capture through audiovisual footage, this is in order to generate further content based on the feedback

- Africa with a strong cultural identity, common heritage, values and ethics
