In July 2020, Magid Magid in collaboration with The University of the Underground Charity announced the creation of a new programme titled ‘New Politics & Afrofuturism’. The tuition free programme- which will run from 19th October 2020 to March 2021– is calling for Black Radical imagination and pop-culture as powerful vehicles for propelling progressive social justice narratives to mainstream audiences, with a focus on afrofuturism, black activism, climate justice along with political theory and practice.

As a part of the programme, Magid along with the selected students of 14 will work together on producing meaningful experiences and interventions answering: What would a world where both people and the planet thrive look like? What would the values, systems and culture of that world be?

You can  join the programme as a visiting participant by registering your interest anytime on hello@universityoftheunderground.org – we can than share the schedule with you. A list of teachers joining on this programme is copied below.

***We would recommend  a donation to our charity as a part of the online programme. Recommended donation is 5-10 euros a class and according to what you think you can afford. Your donation will go towards supporting the tuition-free programmes at the University of the Underground, and educators fees. We recommend 100-200 euros for a month access (or 10-15 lectures). thank you. If you wish to donate—-> http://universityoftheunderground.org/donate
