Creative Time (New York) commissions, produces, and presents art that engages history, breaks new ground, challenges the status quo, and infiltrates the public realm by engaging millions of people in New York and across the globe. The organization is guided by a passionate belief in the power of art to create inspiring personal experiences as well as foster social progress. Creative Time privileges artists’ ideas.
Every fall, Creative Time holds an international Summit on issues of urgency and relevance to the global arts community. This year’s Summit is on Friday, October 12 and Saturday, October 13 and focuses on wealth inequality and creative strategies to mobilize social change. The event is held at New York University, however, this year Creative Time is working with a select group of national and international partners to host live satellite screenings of the Summit. RISD has been designated as one of the Summit’s key partners.
