October 14, 2016
On October 14th, ArtsWave partnered with Wave Pool Gallery and local artist Mary Clare Reitz to provide a livestream of the Creative Time Summit, the world’s largest international conference on art and social change. Each year, the Creative Time Summit explores the many ways artists are tackling the world’s most challenging social and political issues. Occurring in the nation’s capital just weeks before the 2016 Presidential Election, the Creative Time Summit focused on what it might mean to radically transform the current state of democracy. A free livestream was provided throughout the day at the Wave Pool Gallery in Camp Washington, with a culminating livestream at The Sanctuary in Price Hill, featuring a keynote panel with Alicia Garza, artist and co-founder of #BlackLivesMatter. Local artist Mary Clare Reitz facilitated a group discussion immediately following the livestream for the more than 30 attendees. This Blueprint Lunch & Learn focused on Bridging Cultural Divides.
