Since 1980, Raleigh's Visual Art Exchange has provided gallery and work space, education, and a community hub for local artists both established and emerging. Its mission to incubate creativity is focused in its annual Ignite summits, which bring artists together and encourage them to think big. With "equity" as this year's watchword, the summit emphasizes ways that creativity can link up with social-justice goals to foster a more inclusive world. Friday night features a cocktail reception and, at seven, a free, public keynote address by Imani Jacqueline Brown, discussing her work with Blights Out (NOLA), which unites artists, architects, and activists to revitalize neglected neighborhoods. The main event, all day Saturday, includes a live recording of the local visual-art podcast Don't You Lie to Me, the surreal delights of Paperhand Puppet Intervention, panels, creative problem-solving, and a concluding happy-hour event at Whiskey Kitchen. —David Klein
