Stephanie Afrifa is a cultural innovator based in The Netherlands. Her job roles are as diverse as her network. From curating art shows to hosting talks, her happy place where she blossoms the most is when she is allowed to evangelise about innovations in the arts, cultural studies, heritage and well-being.

“I use my voice to amplify dope moments, movements and people. I find happiness in meaningful connections, thoughtful communication, critical thinking and creating safe spaces to catalyse change and build bridges.”

Stephanie has worked with Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk Museum, De Bijenkorf and Van Gogh Museum. She often participates in public debates and prime-time talk shows where she discusses arts and culture. One of her highlights is her interview with renowned artist and filmmaker Ai Wei Wei for De Wereld Draait Door.

As a presenter, she has contributed to Vogue Fashion Festival, Amsterdam Art Festival, ING Unseen Talent Awards and Mama Cash Feminist Festival. Her writing has appeared in Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and Glamour.

She currently serves as a board member for the Rotterdam Art Foundation.
