How might we design more participatory creative moments in Miami? Join a community conversation and brainstorm.Â Miamiâ€™s art community is growing and changing every day, helping to build a more vibrant and expressive city. Yet for many of us, the experience with a community is mostly one-way interactions, as audience or viewer or supporter. Participatory art invites people to join in the process of creating a workâ€”whether itâ€™s painting, performance or experimentâ€”and can transform peopleâ€™s ideas of art and their relationship with the local artistic community.
Join the Arts and Business Council of Miami and WhereBy.Us for an evening of inspiration and community creativity to brainstorm ideas for building participatory artistic experiences in our city. Youâ€™ll hear lightning talks from local artists, innovators and creators, and then break into small groups to create new ideas we might build together. The most promising ideas will be eligible for small funding that can help make them happen.Â Food, drink and live music will be on hand. Anyone and everyone is welcome. Food and drinks start at 6pm; the program of speakers start at 6:30, and the brainstorm begins at 7:15.
