We acknowledge that the site of The World’s UnFair in what is currently called Long Island City, Queens occupies Lenapehoking, the homelands of the Lenape. Creative Time stands in solidarity with the Lenape diasporas’ right to return to their ancestral lands. As occupiers of this territory, we recognize the continual displacement of Native people, and we are committing to confronting the ongoing effects of this colonial legacy.
We understand that land acknowledgements are often used as an empty stand-in for actual decolonization work and are committed to confronting the ongoing effects of this colonial legacy. To read more about Creative Time’s commitment to decolonization, please read here.
