Creative Time Summit: Occupy The Future - Glasgow Screening Site
MLitt Curatorial Practice (Contemporary Art) and The Hunterian, are facilitating a live screening of Creative Time's 2016 Summit: Occupy The Future, taking place in Washington D.C. on Fri 14 and Sat 15 October 2016.
The Creative Time Summit—the world’s largest international conference on art and social change—is headed to Washington, D.C. Occurring in the nation’s capital just weeks before the 2016 Presidential Election, the Creative Time Summit DC will take this important moment to collectively consider what it might mean to radically transform the current state of democracy.
Featuring speakers such as Black Lives Matter co-founder Alicia Garza, Hans Ulrich Obrist, artistic director at the Serpentine Galleries; Minor Threat and Fugazi frontman Ian MacKaye; Haneen Zoabi, Israeli Arab politician, currently serving as a member of the Knesset for the Join List; Guardian and Harper’s columnist Thomas Frank; and genderqueer artist Vaginal Davis, and many more! The 2016 Summit offers a platform for citizen-led strategies and grassroots movements working within, as well as disrupting, electoral politics.
A Full Schedule is available here (NB Glasgow viewing times are +5 hrs) - http://creativetime.org/summit/dc-2016/
