The SUBSUME SUMMIT brings Atlanta’s storytelling communities together to connect and collaborate. Art. Tech. Social Innovation. Fun.

About this Event

The SUBSUME SUMMIT is a one-day event that allows the Atlanta community to meet, engage, and support its Creative Neighbors who influence a diaspora of art, social commentary, and popular cultures.

SUBSUME is a community that seeks to connect Atlanta’s Creative Class and champion its unique needs, expectations, voice, and collaborative futures.

#SUBSUMEatl2019 takes place Saturday, November 9th at Auburn Avenue Research Library on African American Culture and History from 11am to 6pm.

Come out and vibe + connect with the artists, authors, technologists, filmmakers, and other fellow creatives that make Atlanta the cultural center of the world.

With an eclectic mix of engaging speakers, artist vending and programming, the Summit will become a unique experiment of art and community.

Proceeds from our donation tickets will go to the participating artists as well as generate an overall donation to the Auburn Avenue Research Library to continue its educational and cultural works.
