The Miami Foundation will host up-and-coming young talent, local change-agents and engaged Miamians at its kickoff event for two new projects: the Public Space Challenge and a talent retention project. Both programs are part of the Foundationâ€™s Our Miami Initiative, which fosters community by building attachment to the city, developing public spaces and retaining young talent in Miami. The Miami Foundation developed a county-wide challenge to uncover the best ideas for creating and improving local public spaces: parks, libraries, public buildings, markets, plazas, playgrounds or any place where people can convene and connect. Ideas can be submitted from anyone, including individuals, groups, for-profit companies and nonprofit organizations. Community experts and professional placemakers will identify the top ideas, and the Miami Foundation will invest $100,000 to make the ideas become reality. In addition, the foundation will also launch a talent retention project and Web survey. The online tool measures an individualâ€™s â€œattachmentâ€ to Greater Miami and provides the participant suggestions about how to become more engaged where they live. Entry is complimentary with RSVP and open to the public.
