September 24 at 4pm: "Accountability and Socially Engaged Art" (Abrons Art Center)

Socially engaged projects often tie cultural producers to the communities with whom they work in a complex collaborative relationship. This talk explores the ethical responsibilities producers have, both during and after their projects are completed.

This year's Summit is presented in conjunction with Creative Time's Living as Form, over 100 Artists and Projects, 25 Curators and 9 New Commissions Highlighting 20 Years of Socially Engaged Art

The Creative Time Summit includes cultural producers whose international projects consist of a vast array of practices and methodologies that engage with the canvas of everyday life. Participants range from art world luminaries to those purposefully obscure, providing a glimpse into an evolving community concerned with the political implications of socially engaged art. This third iteration of the Summit features presenters with projects in the Living as Form archive.
