Join us at the 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 November 1–3, 2018 and will feature 3 days of talks, performances, community driven workshops, film screenings, and more!

Titled On Archipelagos and Other Imaginaries—Collective Strategies to Inhabit the World, this year’s Summit takes coalition as a central theme, and utilizes the archipelago as a framework to delve into Miami’s connection to the Caribbean and, by extension, to Latin America and the entire world.

During the three days, 80+ speakers and performers will engage with themes including immigration and borders, climate realities, notions of intersectional justice, gentrification, tourism as an enabler for neocolonialism, and the roles art and activism can play in all these issues. We’ll start with an opening party at the Pérez Art Museum Miami. Then, join us for a day of presentations at the Adrienne Arsht Center. Finally, we’ll spread out across Miami for breakout sessions and field trips, closing the Summit with an outdoor film series at SoundScape Park.

This year’s speakers include author and MacArthur “Genius” Edwidge Danticat, philosopher Timothy Morton, writer Vijay Prashad, curator Elvis Fuentes, and artist Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons.

Passes are available on a sliding scale from $25 – $300 — register here.

The Summit is co-presented with Art in Public Places of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, with leading support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
