The Creative Time Summit is an annual conference in New York that brings together cultural producers–including artists, critics, writers, and curators–to discuss how their work engages pressing issues affecting our world. This year, the 2013 Creative Time Summit sets its sights on Art, Place & Dislocation in the 21st Century City and the fact that culture, for good or bad, is an active ingredient in the construction and shaping of the contemporary city. Tapping into widespread debate on this issue, this year’s Summit provides a global platform for consideration of the trials, tribulations, artistic practices, campaigns, theories, and practicalities that accompany this phenomenon. As the active role of culture in the city gains traction not only with artists but also with architects, city planners, philanthropists, and developers—from eye-popping monumental sculpture, to arts districts, to battles over eviction and squatting—this year’s Summit provides a timely opportunity to debate and consider a variety of artistic approaches to this contemporary condition. For the complete Summit Schedule, including the full list of speakers, please visit the Creative Time Summit website.

In addition to viewing the talks and panels from New York, participants will have access to local responses and face-to-face small-group discussions.

Important Note: To register, we ask that you sign up online at EventBrite, at the event detail page here, and that you submit one paragraph (no more than 500 words) that touches upon the topics relevant to the 2013 Summit theme, Art, Place & Dislocation in the 21st Century City. This is not an abstract per se, but a discursive offering to the group to galvanize our collective thinking prior to the live event. You are welcome to include links and or photos as well.
Paragraphs will be posted to the ARC Muses Blog before the event, and we ask that participants read each other’s reflections beforehand. Send blog posts to ucb_arts@berkeley.edu by Friday, October 18. We also encourage you to browse through the Creative Time Summit Reader as an overview for the day.
