MIAMI, FL – Art and culture take center stage at the Third annual Caribe Arts Fest to be held at the Little Haiti Cultural Complex in Miami.
A celebration of the artistic essence of the Americas and the Caribbean, the three day event, created by American Art Initiative, is positioned to help artists, aspiring and established, entertain South Florida visitors and residents through art exhibits, independent films, musical and poetic performers, plus educational workshops.
Taking place Oct. 23 – 25, 2015, the scheduled events will feature a Friday night DJ Party and Film Screening, Saturday’s Live-Music Concert, and Sunday’s Poetry Slam.
There are also activities such as the Kids Zone, Fashion Shows, the College Students’ Community Connection, Culinary Arts Presentations and much more for a total family fun experience. Weekend passes are only $20 while each day patrons may purchase a day pass for $10. Children under 12 are free. Tickets are available online.
For founders Michelle McKoy and David Muir, the event has been a vision that both shared as they pursued ways to support themselves and other artists from minority backgrounds. “We’re both artists who understand what it takes to be able to do what you love and live,” said Muir in a recent interview, “we believe this is just the beginning of a movement that will attract the necessary attention on the awesome talent we have in our communities.” For more details on times and schedules of events visit www.caribeartsfest.com
The Little Haiti Cultural Complex inspires children of all ages through a rewarding Outreach Program. By providing a nurturing learning environment, they develop artistic skills and explore their hidden talents. This program includes summer workshops, a performing arts season, and numerous events.
The vision is to stimulate young minds by encouraging artistic values and offering a quality interactive atmosphere. The center conducts programs in the visual and performing arts that are designed to appeal to a broad spectrum of diverse backgrounds, ability, and educational levels. We believe that there is an artistic spirit in all of us that nourishes our humanity and enriches our society.
The American Art Initiative (AAI) was established to support the development and expansion of the arts by maintaining an exchange of talent and creativity for cultural, social, and economic viability. Our team consists of artists who understand the needs of artists. The main aim is to create positive representation of independent artists, create support and outlets that develop leadership for progressive living.
