Each 21c is hosting a public live stream screening of this year’s Creative Time Summit, Miami: On Archipelagos and Other Imaginaries – Collective Strategies to Inhabit the World on November 2. Guests are welcome to come and go, attending the sessions they most wish to see during the day of presentations.
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, with a live stream on November 2. 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.”

About the Creative Time Summit:
Artists have always raised their voices to speak truth to power, and have never been more important than at this moment in history, when social movements are erupting around the world. At Creative Time, we believe that artists are truly change agents, with the ability to affect society for the better. Each year, the Creative Time Summit explores the many ways in which artists are tackling the world’s most challenging social and political issues. Innovative artists, activists, writers, and curators take the Summit stage to present bold new strategies for social change to a global audience.
