Who wants to talk at the same forum as Slavoj Žižek? Well, here’s your chance to give a talk alongside the likes of Martha Rosler, Slavoj Žižek, and Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev at the Creative Time Summit.
This year’s annual two-day conference will bring together a boatload of artists, curators, academics, and activists, and the event culminates in a $25,000 prize given out to an artist for work on social justice. Alongside this year’s speakers, Creative Time is hosting an open call for anyone who wants to give an eight-minute talk on the topic of wealth inequality in their own work. The deadline is tonight at midnight, so hurry up and send an email to email@example.com.
For more info about who should apply, here’s the details straight from the Creative Time Tumblr:
Open Call for a Creative Time Summit Presenter
For the 2012 Creative Time Summit, we are seeking a cultural producer from our dynamic global audience who is tackling issues of inequity and using creative strategies to mobilize social change. The Summit will be held on October 12th and 13th, 2012 at New York University’s Skirball Center.
We seek an inspirational 8-minute talk about a single project that speaks to the issue of wealth inequity, highlights the political implications of your practice, and showcases what your work has done to discuss, expose, or challenge a specific issue. We are looking for compelling projects and sincerity, rather than a CV or a laundry list of professional achievements.
If selected to present at the conference, Creative Time will fly you to New York City and cover all accommodations from October 11th–14th. Please do not apply if you cannot travel to New York between October 11th and October 14th.
TO APPLY SEND:
- A short (500 word max.) description of what you would present during your allotted 8 minutes at the Summit. Remember, this presentation should focus on a single project.
- Up to 5 images or 5 minutes of video. Please do not send anything that cannot be opened via email. If we would like larger files, we will request them from you!
- All materials to: firstname.lastname@example.org by: WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 29th, 2012
If you are selected, we will notify you by: Friday, September 14, 2012.
