Afrolis hero image


Started as Radio Afrolis, a podcast about the experiences of African descendant people in Lisbon with the aim to register their narratives, understand their feelings of belonging - or not -, and how each one and others understand these experiences.

In five years, they have produced more than 200 interviews with people’s unique stories about their lives in the city. For Afrolis, the art of telling stories is a way to survive, of sharing old knowledge and confronting visions of the world.

Since then, it evolved to be the Afrolis Cultural Association, whose goal is to share and promote cultural, artistic, intellectual and political production by African descendants through the whole country.
