Creative Time Announces Line-Up For 11th Annual Summit Taking Place in Miami for First Time
July 23rd, 2018
Creative Time is pleased to announce programming for its 11th Creative Time Summit, an annual convening for thinkers, dreamers, and doers working at the intersection of art and politics. The Summit will be held in Miami for the first time this November 1-3, 2018.
Titled On Archipelagos and Other Imaginaries—Collective Strategies to Inhabit the World, it takes coalition as a central theme, and utilizes the archipelago as a framework to delve into Miami’s historical connection to the Caribbean and, by extension, to Latin America and the entire world. The topics under discussion will range from immigration and borders to climate realities notions of intersectional justice, gentrification, tourism as an enabler for neocolonialism, and the roles art and activism can play in all these pressing issues.
“50 years after the upheavals of 1968, we continue to grapple with a host of pressing issues, from the ongoing legacies of colonialism to climate change and xenophobia,” said Creative Time Executive Director Justine Ludwig. “There’s no better place for this conversation than Miami, a home to so many incredible artists, activists, and thinkers. We couldn’t be prouder to host the summit here, or of the participants and the invaluable insights they’ll be bringing to bear on some of the most critical issues of our time.”
This year’s summit is co-presented with the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, with leading support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation as part of its Knight Arts Challenge. Passes are available here on a sliding scale from $25 – $300. To learn more and see the full program, click here.
