48 Hours Summit

Aug 11, 2017 - Aug 12, 2017

Inspired by Denver’s Imagine 2020 Cultural Plan, 48 Hours of Socially Engaged Art & Conversation Summit aims to promote positive social change through creativity and innovation. By bringing together some of the region's most respected organizations, activists, and artists to share their knowledge and perspectives on art and social change, the 48 Hours Summit propels collaboration and important cross-sector work in local communities. Comprised of two days jam-packed with workshops, 10 minute talks, performances, and socially engaged art- this event is not to be missed!

48 Hours: 2017 will follow RedLine’s annual theme: (Dis)place and will focus on geography, community, access to resources, location, and relocation. In a rapidly growing city, 48 Hours will explore the many complicated layers of what makes a “place.” How does the physical fabric of a city contribute to understandings of civic character? Which neighborhoods and populations profit from development, and who is displaced as a result? How can art delineate places and mediate between communities?
