SFAI 140 is an evening of creativity and conversation featuring 20 short talks by some of the area’s most innovative thinkers and practitioners. It is a quarterly event in which artists, members of the community and leaders of cultural organizations discuss ideas and projects in lightning-fast presentations: 20 speakers each with seven slides at 20 seconds per slide (for a total of 140 seconds). The impetus behind SFAI 140 is to create a dynamic, engaged evening where SFAI’s gifted artists-in-residence talk about their work alongside dedicated members of the Santa Fe community.

We asked ourselves: instead of having lengthy, monographic talks by one or two individuals, could we offer just a taste to inspire and create a spark for further, more in-depth conversations? While the format for SFAI 140 may seem quick, one hundred and forty seconds can actually be a really long time, a profound amount of time in fact. In 140 seconds one can create a tremendous impact and drive change. The Arab Spring came about as a result of people expressing their passions and frustrations in 140 characters, President Lincoln spoke his 272-word Gettysburg Address in a little under 140 seconds.

As SFAI 140 reveals, time doesn’t limit seminal ideas and their impact.

SFAI is located on the SFUAD campus at 1600 St Michaels  Dr, Santa Fe, New Mexico.
