The Conversation Series is programmed as a preamble to the book Making Another World Possible : 10 Creative Time Summits, 10 Global Issues, 100 Art Projects (Routledge, 2019) edited by Corina L.

Calling artists, activists, writers, students, cultural workers, academics…and all those who may be interested!
