Description

THE CREATIVE TIME SUMMIT IS AN ANNUAL CONVENING FOR THINKERS, DREAMERS, AND DOERS WORKING AT THE INTERSECTION OF ART AND POLITICS.

The 11th Creative Time Summit, an annual convening for thinkers, dreamers, and doers working at the intersection of art and politics 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.

The Summit will be made up of four thematic sections: “Facing climate realities, reimagining a green future,” “Toward an intersectional justice,” “Resisting displacement and violence,” and “On boundaries and a borderless future.”

These themes will be explored through community-driven breakout sessions, social events, roundtable discussions, workshops, panels, field trips, interactive performances, screenings, and other creative formats designed to share tools, strategies, and actions with over 1,000 international and local attendees.
