Creative Many Summit: Land in this Place
ArtServe Michigan is partnering with MOCAD to present the 2nd Creative Many Detroit Summit. The summit is designed to facilitate an exchange of ideas and will be a lively mix of presentations, provocations, discussion and opportunity to connect. Open to all artists and creative practitioners of all disciplines, the summit will be a key opportunity to share your ideas, knowledge and skills with other participants. The Creative Many Detroit Summit will conclude with an "unconference" of targeted discussions exploring how to continue to shape the future of Detroit as an artist-centered city. The multi-day summit will bring together artists and specialists from across a broad spectrum of disciplines, to share their knowledge and expertise. The summit will offer the opportunity for serious, working artists to gather information on expanding their professional practice.
This year’s theme is Land in this Place. Thinking about land as both a noun and a verb, this second Creative Many Detroit Summit will explore the role that artists and creative people play in shaping opportunities and resources for themselves and others. This summit is concerned with questioning notions of what it means to land and how we empower ourselves and others to take-off. We will also explore the ways in which artists and others are participating and in some cases shaping issues around land use and urban planning to evolve ideas and definitions of place and community.
