Creative Time Summit 2015

The Curriculum

Defne Ayas, Ahmet Öğüt, Didem Pekün, Zeyno Pekünlü and Hakan Topal have been invited to this year’s summit “The Curriculum”, which took place in Venice on the 11–13 August. SAHA supported curator and artists’ participation in the conference.

The Creative Time Summit is a seminal gathering of artists, curators, critics, and scholars working in the field of social practice art. The Creative Time Summit: “The Curriculum” brings together nearly 60 speakers, including artists, activists, educators, theorists, and policymakers from more than 20 countries. The Summit is asking such questions as “How is knowledge formed within one person and transmitted through time, space, and social relationships? What practices and manifestations of knowledge are privileged, and what forces shape those values?” Specific topics to be considered range from artist-initiated educational institutions to the potential of curriculum for community-wide learning, the future of education in Afghanistan, and de-colonized pedagogy.
