We are delighted to welcome Creative Capital artists Ann Carlson and Ghana ThinkTank to IdeaFestival 2017. Ann Carlson borrows from the disciplines of dance, performance, theater, visual and conceptual art, often dismantling conventional boundaries between artist and subject. Carlson’s work takes the form of solo dance/performance, site-specific projects, ensemble theatrical works and performance/video. The Ghana ThinkTank is a worldwide network of think tanks, founded in 2006 and managed by John Ewing, Carmen Montoya and Christopher Robbins, creating strategies to resolve local problems in the "developed" world. The network began with think tanks from Ghana, Cuba and El Salvador, and has since expanded to include Serbia, Mexico and Ethiopia. In partnership with Creative Capital.
