Creative Time’s Speaking Truth Summit, runs throughout 2019 in New York City, starting with this discussion, which “brings together practitioners working to reshape digital and media environments in a moment of historically low trust in our institutions. Gathering to discuss the current practices and concerns with regards to the manipulation and dissemination of public information, and increasing attacks to freedom of expression, speakers will address the impetus to forge connections and solidarity structures using new media technologies and conceive challenges to conventional wisdom.”
The summit includes two additional conversations in coming months and a weekend-long convening in November, along with an accompanying book.
