People Of Culture,

Chicago, Illinois, United States Chicago, Illinois, United States

  • About the event

    People of Culture is about rewriting the African narrative through fashion, style, music and art. We seek to project a positive message about Africa and hopefully reshape the attitude and bias of how Africa is portrayed. 


    People of Culture is about curating culture and providing a visual lens for cultural expression through hip hop, dance, arts and craft, music, and festival.  This annual event draws individuals from Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal, Togo, South Africa  who are based in the United States, but yearn a connection to the motherland.

    Why should you sponsor?

    - Brands get to connect with a fresh and unique demographic market that's rarely been explored or understood.

    - Opportunity to communicate your message to hundreds/thousands of African prospects on multiple digital platforms at a reasonable rate. 


    - Contribute towards building a thriving community of Africans in the diaspora looking to make a difference.

    My name is Efe Iyare and I am the founder of the event "People Of Culture." I created this as a platform for cultural expression and to create awareness on the richness and abundance of the African culture.

    Africa has not been duly represented by the media. Media content tends to portray Africa in a negative light, with hunger, aids and starvation being the recurring message. The People Of Culture hopes to change such narrative, and focus on the positive image of Africa, showcasing our rich heritage, fashion, food, art and lifestyle.
