Convergence is a platform for Indigenous and diasporic arts that amplifies voices, creates space for dialogue, and showcases the richness of multiple artistic practices.
Convergence comprises two entities:
- Convergence Magazine, a magazine in which individuals of various backgrounds are invited to share their perspective and experience on the arts of Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Oceania.
- Convergence Studio, a creative agency specialized in Indigenous arts from around the world. We design high impact experiences for your brand that connect art, diversity, and sustainability.

As a team of primarily White ancestry who grew up in Europe, we acknowledge our position of privilege as well as exteriority to the topics and traditions that we want Convergence to showcase. Being raised in a culture where colonialism is presented as a distant and vague memory to forget, we strive to challenge this narrative and instead to engage in sometimes difficult or uncomfortable conversations, to amplify voices which have long been muffled, and to spread knowledge and perspectives widely. Rather than simply to make amends or share our passion, Convergence is for us a way to put our skills and privilege to use, to hopefully contribute to change, in a process of reparation and reconstruction.
