Blum Media International is pleased to be collaborating another year with Creative Time Reports and the Creative Time Summit 2015.
At the invitation of Okwui Enwezor, artistic director of the 56th International Art Exhibition of la Biennale di Venezia, the 2015 Creative Time Summit will participate in the program All the World’s Futures. The Summit is a core program of Creative Time, the innovative experimental arts organization based in New York. This year’s Creative Time Summit will focus its renowned summit on the topic of Curriculum during a lively three-day forum in mid August. In development since summer 2014, this year’s Creative Time Summit has engaged a broad range of thinkers, artists, researchers, and activists in a series of plenary sessions to address what it means to produce, transform, and transmit knowledge across the conflicted terrain of the world today.

In order to build our global community, we are trying something completely new: We’re taking the Summit on the road! The annual Creative Time Summit will be held in New York City every other year, with different cities across the globe hosting in alternate years. We could not be more excited to hit the road this year, landing in Stockholm, Sweden, on November 14-15! We know this leap will be significant, helping us to deepen our international connections and introduce us to new trailblazers working at the intersection of art and social justice.
