CREATIVE TIME WANTS YOU!
Open Call for a Creative Time Summit Presenter
For the 2012 Creative Time Summit, we are seeking a cultural producer from our dynamic global audience who is tackling issues of inequity and using creative strategies to mobilize social change. The Summit will be held on October 12th and 13th, 2012 at New York University’s Skirball Center.
This year’s Summit, titled Confronting Inequity, brings together artists, curators, organizers, and thinkers who have contributed to changing public discourse and political debates surrounding global financial inequality.
We seek an inspirational 8-minute talk about a single project that speaks to the issue of wealth inequity, highlights the political implications of your practice, and showcases what your work has done to discuss, expose, or challenge a specific issue. We are looking for compelling projects and sincerity, rather than a CV or a laundry list of professional achievements. If selected to present at the conference, Creative Time will fly you to New York City and cover all accommodations from October 11th–14th.
Join Slavoj Žižek, Suzanne Lacy, Laura Poitras, Pablo Helguera, Invisible Borders, and Malkia Cyril, among others, as a presenter at Creative Time’s 2012 Summit. It’s simple to apply!
TO APPLY SEND:
- A short (500 word max.) description of what you would present during your allotted 8 minutes at the Summit. Remember, this presentation should focus on a single project.
- Up to 5 images or 5 minutes of video. Please do not send anything that cannot be opened via email. If we would like larger files, we will request them from you!
- All materials to: firstname.lastname@example.org by: WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 29th, 2012
If you are selected, we will notify you by: Friday, September 14, 2012.
Due to a large number of applications, we will not be able to notify all applicants of receipt or application status. Please do not apply if you cannot travel to New York between October 11th and October 14th.
