Launch Event Miami Design District What’s New?

“Our Miami” Project Launch at the Stage

"Our Miami" Project Launch at the StageWednesday, July 31, 6pm-8pm – The Stage, 170 NE 38th Street, Miami Design District

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 Foundation’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 individual’s “attachment” 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.
