Bolstering the Arts, Together


The arts are a powerful force, allowing us to express our humanity through a spectrum of emotions, from joy to sadness and nostalgia. Most importantly, the arts allow us to connect with one another, and address the profound cultural and societal frameworks that make up our present-day reality. In a moment of collective reckoning, the arts encourage reflection, ignite necessary conversations, and create empathy among our widely diverse communities.

Over the last decade, Miami’s arts community has flourished into one that truly resonates with the city’s multicultural and multilingual public. From world-class museums to renowned symphonies and dance companies, artist residencies and studio spaces, and a thriving community of creators, Miami has emerged as one of the foremost art centers in the United States. Its impact makes our city a more desirable and socially engaged place to live, generates billions of dollars in economic activity, and inspires future generations to imagine a more inclusive and just world.

ABOUT MIAMI ART STRONG

WHAT:

Miami Art Strong is an ongoing partnership between Miami-Dade County’s cultural institutions to strengthen the impact and ensure the longevity of the arts in Miami.

WHY:

The COVID-19 pandemic spurred a set of unprecedented challenges for Miami’s cultural institutions, forcing all to close and adjust their programming schedules to ensure public safety. While their temporary closure certainly impacted revenue streams and important programming and exhibition adjustments, what our organizations ultimately miss most is the ability to connect directly with local audiences.

WHEN:

The time is now! Please share your #MiamiArtStrong moment with us.

HOW:

We invite our community to share how the arts have inspired them using the hashtag #MiamiArtStrong across platforms.
