Make Music Miami
In collaboration with the Rhythm Foundation and Guitars Over Guns, Make Music Miami is an annual celebration on June 21st in which everyone in Miami-Dade County has the opportunity to make music or enjoy a performance. Coordinated activities are scheduled through Miami Dade County and a special one-day webcast of select activities is broadcast in public and private spaces alike.
As part of the O, Miami Poetry Festival 2015, Buskerfest Miami launched a new project entitled O,ral Records. The project collected stories of the Miami-Dade transit system from both riders and operators. From the submissions, seven stories were selected for artistic interpretation by Buskerfest alumni artists Celestial, Somewhat Hungover, Front Yard Theater Collective, Meredith Barton and The Poetry Messengers. The new works were premiered at the Exile Books Zine Fair and hosted by the YoungArts Foundation.
CULTRA is a roving, outdoor open mic series that takes place in Downtown Miami's three primary parks: Museum Park, Parcel B and Bayfront Park. The project features local performers of all disciplines and is suitable for all ages. CULTRA is the recipient of a 2016 Public Space Challenge grant.
Ear To The Ground
This interactive series is designed to highlight local artists by staging performances in public spaces near the neighborhoods those artists call home. The intent is to strengthen bonds between the performance community and the community at large to both showcase Miami's unparalleled talent and introduce community members to artists in their own backyard (literally). Awesome, right?!
