Creative Time: Amanda Weil Lecture Open Call

Creative Time seeks an extraordinary member of our community to present their work on stage at our first international Summit! Apply for the Amanda Weil Lecture here!

Each year, the Creative Time Summit explores the many ways in which artists are tackling the world’s most challenging social and political issues. Innovative artists, activists, writers, and curators take the Summit stage to present bold new strategies for social change to a global audience. Since its inception six years ago, the Summit has seen hundreds of luminaries–from famed philosopher Slavoj Žižek, to legendary art critic Lucy Lippard, artist Rick Lowe, and Academy Award nominated filmmaker Laura Poitras, to name only a few–present their unflinching visions to thousands live in the theatre and online.

Named in honor of artist and ever-supportive former Creative Time Board Chair (2006–2013) Amanda Weil, The Amanda Weil Lecture provides an opportunity for the winning artist to discuss work that demonstrates a genuine commitment to community and social change.

While all artists whose practice engages timely public issues will be considered, preference will be given this year to those who explore issues of nationalism, xenophobia, or immigration rights.

If selected to present at the Summit, Creative Time will pay you a speakers fee and will cover travel expenses and accommodations in Stockholm. Apply for the Amanda Weil Lecture!

Applications are due on Friday, February 28, by 6pm EST, and the winner will be announced in spring 2014.
