GREATER MIAMI AREA – OPEN CALL FOR PROPOSALS
Are you an artist, activist, or cultural producer in the Miami area? Creative Time and Art in Public Places of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs invite local participants to propose ideas for breakout sessions for The Creative Time Summit: On Archipelagoes and Other Imaginaries, a three-day convening for thinkers, dreamers, and doers working at the intersection of art and politics.
On Saturday, November 2, the Summit will offer community driven, hour-long sessions designed to share tools, strategies, and actions with over 1000 international and local attendees. Sessions could take the form of roundtable discussions, workshops, panels, field trips, interactive performances, screenings, or other creative formats and may reflect on the themes of the larger Summit. At the same time, we encourage sessions that engage with the field of socially engaged art more broadly.
If you or your organization are interested in planning a breakout session to bring into focus pressing issues within your practice and communities, please submit a proposal for review by Sunday, June 17 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Proposals will be reviewed by a selection committee consisting of our Advisory Council and Summit team. Applicants will be advised of the outcome of their application by mid-July. All selected sessions will receive a modest honorarium.
If you would like to be involved by offering space that could house a breakout session, please email us to be considered by Sunday, June 17.
