CREATIVE TIME SUMMIT OF HOMELANDS & REVOLUTION: SCREENING AND STUDY DAY

AN ANNUAL CONVENING FOR THINKERS, DREAMERS, AND DOERS WORKING AT THE INTERSECTION OF ART AND POLITICS.

WEDNESDAY 8th NOVEMBER 2017.

 

10.00 am –12.30 in the PGR STUDY ROOM and 1.00 - 3.30 pm in Lecture Theatre B. All welcome.

Join us to watch a screening of selected highlights and generate a discussion from this autumn’s recent Creative Time Summit Of Homelands & Revolution. Some 80 + international and local participants ( artist, activist and other thinkers and doers)  converged in Toronto to discuss some of today’s most pressing issues within two expansive frameworks.

In the words of Creative Time’s Nato Thompson:

The 2017 Summit invites participants to consider the many-layered political and aesthetic understandings of home alongside social movements — revolutionary ones at that — which have sought to summon a broader dream of social justice. Present in both of the Summit’s main thematic threads are ongoing movements led by indigenous peoples across continents and the multiple relations between home, land, culture, and community that they bring to bear.

Speakers include : Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, Winona Laduke, Wanda Nanibush, Syrus Marcus Ware, Post Commodity, Coco Fusco.

Selections chosen by research students with break out sessions for discussions.

The Creative Time Summit is a roving platform to encounter the intersection of art and politics. Bringing together artists, activists, and other thought leaders working on today’s most pressing issues, the Summit presents a critical range of perspectives, new ideas, and strategies for social change in local and global contexts. (Creative Time, 2017).

Hosted by PhD students from the Critical Practices Research Group.
