48 Hours of Socially Engaged Art & Conversation
About 48 Hours
48 Hours of Socially Engaged Art & Conversation Summit is a two day summit and exhibition that engages cultural organizations, non-profits, artists, and individuals to share their expertise on cultural responsiveness, social responsibility, and collective leadership. Inspired by Denver’s Imagine 2020 Cultural Plan, 48 Hours aims to promote positive social change through creativity and innovation. This year, 48 Hours will change to a one day block party event, 24 Hours Block Party, in order to amp up for a full, two day summit in 2020. 24 Hours Block Party is looking for nonprofits, artists, foundations, activists, collectives, groups, and individuals who have ideas for Performances, Socially Engaged Art Projects, Interactive Makers Projects, Zine/Blog Submissions based around our annual theme of D | Vision.
Annual Theme: D | Vision
Throughout 2019, RedLine's exhibits, special events, and programs will seek to investigate the ways in which division opens space for new creation and perspectives or how culture makes vision out of division. We are looking to investigate both division and visioning for the future during the event. How are we able to come together during times of extreme divisiveness and create a better future in which everyone has a voice? The block party offers an opportunity to explore both the discord and disunity currently occurring and envisage what is possible in the future.
48 Hours supports Denver’s Imagine 2020 Cultural Plan and creates a platform for exploring the tenets of the plan. Click here to learn more about the plan.
