Creative Time

The Summit is Headed to DC

June 22nd, 2016

This fall, we’re taking the Creative Time Summit to the city of politics, Washington, DC! The Summit will take place October 14-16 at the historic Lincoln Theatre – an incredible cultural landmark located in the lively U-Street neighborhood, with additional sessions and events unfolding throughout the city.

Occurring in the nation’s capital just weeks before the 2016 Presidential Election, the Creative Time Summit DC will take this historic moment to collectively consider what it might mean to radically transform the current state of Democracy. Around the world both the left and the right are making their dissatisfaction with the center known, setting the stage for a virulent electoral season. Shaking up the political landscape, worldwide social movements — from Arab Spring to #BlackLivesMatter — are now engrained in popular discourse. The 2016 Summit offers a platform for citizen-led strategies and grassroots movements working within as well as disrupting electoral politics. As we work to push forward the ideals of human rights in practice, what does it mean to actually occupy power in a future as yet unwritten?

Passes go public in June, but for now you can sign up here for pre-sale passes and all the critical updates.

See you in October for what we know will be an one-of-a-kind weekend the likes of which D.C. has certainly not seen before.
