The NAGB is happy to be a screening site for the 2018 Creative Time Summit, which is an annual convening for thinkers, dreamers, and doers working at the intersection of art and politics.
Over 80 speakers 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 pressing issues. This year’s speakers include Haitian-American author and MacArthur “Genius” Edwidge Danticat, philosopher Timothy Morton, writer Vijay Prashad, artist Zach Blas, curator Elvis Fuentes and Cuban-born artist Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons.
Friday November 2nd, we congregate at the NAGB from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. to listen to the exciting streamed talks, performances, activations and more. Following the discussions we have invited several key professionals to speak towards issues addressed in the streamed conference: Adelle Thomas, Joey Gaskins and others.. The day’s conversation will be moderated with moments for healthy debate and discussion before and after lunch.
The NAGB will be providing refreshments during breaks. Click here to register!
