Amy Goodman will deliver a keynote address at 11 am at the Creative Time Summit at the Venice Biennale.

The Creative Time Summit is the leading conference devoted to exploring the intersection of art and social justice

About the Creative Time Summit:

Artists have always raised their voices to speak truth to power, and have never been more important than at this moment in history, when social movements are erupting around the world. At Creative Time, we believe that artists are truly change agents, with the ability to affect society for the better.

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.

The event will be available via livestream on the internet–see for information.
