To be disruptive is to shatter conventional ways of thinking, interacting, and organizing.
In a moment when Santa Fe and cities across the world are asking major questions about their social and economic futures, Creative Santa Fe is embarking on a new dialogue series to foster disruptive thinking. From these dialogues, we aim to generate visionary and collaborative new approaches to respond to the most pressing issues facing our city’s communities.
The Disruptive Futures Dialogue Series will be a multi-year community engagement, in partnership with organizations across our city. It is our goal that this series will leverage and accentuate Santa Fe’s unique assets and capacities to find new pathways forward for progress.
Harnessing the power of creativity and collaboration, this series will convene Santa Feans from all walks of life and in a wide variety of fields to examine critical issues brought forth by our partners. Each dialogue will support thinking and tackling subjects in bold new ways.
Confirmed 2018 Disruptive Futures Dialogues include:
June 28th – Housing the Future
July 8th – Nuclear Weapons in New Mexico
September 13th – The Rebirth of Local News
November 8th – Disrupting the Cycle of Poverty
Upcoming collaborative events:
July 13th – Under-Told Stories Project
August 16th – Native Arts and Policy: Resilience and Rights
2019 topics in progress:
The Future of Art and Culture
The Neuroscience of Education
The Creative Voices Roundtables are ongoing conversations with diverse creative leaders to explore how we can embed the arts in each of our Disruptive Futures Dialogues. Through these creative discourses, we aim to include inspiring creative voices in addressing topics ranging from education, poverty, affordable housing, cybersecurity, the way we communicate, and more, in an effort to reimagine how we can develop solutions to these community issues.
