Copperbridge Foundation's Cultural Evolution series presents dancers, musicians, actors, writers, and visual artists from around the globe at our highly curated and interactive cultural events to create dialogue through the arts.
Copper Fest is is a week-long celebration of arts and culture offering free community outreach events including performances, exhibits, workshops, and lectures.
The first Copper Fest focused on Cuban culture and its African roots encompassing sixteen cultural events throughout venues in the Wynwood Arts District and the Miami Design District of Miami.
Copper Fest continued this year and focused on the cultural demographic of North Miami and its surrounding areas. It took place at MOCA, WJ Bryan Elementary, Miami Dade College - Kendall Campus, Little Haiti Cultural Center, and Spirit&Beyond.
CeramiCommunity offers free arts workshops with local and international professional artists/ professors with the Miami Community bringing senior citizens, kids, and parents together through the arts.
The first CeramiCommunity reunited internationally recognized and award-winning artist, Pedro Pulido, with his principal educator and expert in Afro-Cuban arts, Alexander Carrillo Gonzalez. With the students of Key Biscayne K-8 Community School, they created a permanent mural in the hallway of the school.
This year, we continued the CeramiCommunity project with Pedro Pulido at WJ Bryan Elementary. The project resulted in a mural that will be permanent fixture in the passageway of the school.
