The definitions below explain our take on Afropolitanism and our Afropolitan Lifestyle ideology
Afropolitanism is a global culture that is the positive combination of lifestyle, ideologies, experiences, tastes and preferences, passions and values that are distinctively African and yet positively globally influenced, adaptable and replicable.
An Afropolitan is someone who actively and consistently engages in, is influenced by and identifies with Afropolitanism.
An Afropolis is a city where Afropolitanism is the standard and dominant way of life, regardless of where it is situated globally.
The way cultures in different countries of the world have become more alike, sharing increasingly similar consumer products and ways of life. This has arisen as globalization has undermined national and local cultures.
Cultural globalization refers to the transmission of ideas, meanings and values around the world in such a way as to extend and intensify social relations.
This process is marked by the common consumption of cultures that have been diffused by the Internet, popular culture media, and international travel.
The Afropolitan Lifestyle™ is a Mastermind Concepts platform created to serve as a global culture melting pot for Afropolitanism.
Afropolitan Lifestyle Experiences are channels via which the Afropolitan Lifestyle is expressed in its multiple forms and can be experienced by the consumers.
Examples of the multiple forms of expression include fashion, beauty entertainment, leisure, education and hospitality.
Central elements behind the Afropolitan Lifestyle are the ideologies of the Connection, Attention, Experience and Collaborative Economy.
The Afropolitan Lifestyle is one influenced by the positive combination of ideologies, experiences, tastes and preferences, passions and values that are distinctively African and yet globally influenced, adaptable and replicable.
The Face of the Afropolitan Lifestyle is any global citizen that is the embodiment of a Neo Afropolitan. A global citizen who fiercely represents Africa in word and deed and is passionate about bringing Africa to the table of global cultures. An Afropolitan who believes in fusing the best of Africa with positive global elements to enhance life at all levels
