Creative Time is proud to share that the Art in Public Places of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs has won a $125,000 matching grant to co-present the 2018 Creative Time Summit in Miami. The grant was awarded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, as part of its Knight Arts Challenge, and will be used to bring a range of critical perspectives to Miami.
“We’re excited to be awarded the opportunity to bring The Summit’s timely dialogue and programming to South Florida, and continue our longstanding tradition of bringing together artists, activists and other thought leaders to engage with urgent social issues and, at times, controversial topics,” says Alyssa Nitchun, Creative Time’s Acting Director.
The Creative Time Summit is an annual convening for thinkers, dreamers, and doers working at the intersection of art and politics. The Summit provides strategies for social change in local and global contexts.
The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation’s Knight Arts Challenge funds the best ideas for bringing South Florida together through the arts. “The arts are a wonderful lens for examining the most pressing issues of our time, and Miami, which is many ways the future of American cities, is a perfect backdrop for these conversations,” said Victoria Rogers, VP/Arts at Knight Foundation.
