We hope that you are doing well and finding meaningful ways of connecting with others and being creative in these most unusual times.
Here at Miami Light Project (virtually speaking), we are doing what we do best – pursuing creative ideas and supporting artists.
Our team is meeting twice a week and working together to lift each other’s spirits, and to support our community.
Speaking of our team, here we are:
In the coming days, we will be sharing some in-depth artist profiles with you, written by Jordan Levin – a creative writer and journalist who has been chronicling Miami’s performance scene for over 20 years.
These profiles offer an in-depth look at how some of Miami’s creative gems keep on shining. We hope that you enjoy reading them and learning more about their behind the scenes process.
Peace and Love,
Miami Light Project would like to share resources with our community of artists. With the help of NPNWeb.org, we put together a list of some of the organizations that are providing emergency resources for artists and arts organizations across the country for your reference.
The Foundation for Contemporary Arts is disbursing $1,000 grants to experimental artists who have had performances or exhibitions canceled or postponed because of the COVID-19 virus for as long as its board of directors deems necessary.
Founded in 1989, Miami Light Project is a not-for-profit cultural organization which presents live performances by innovative dance, music and theater artists from around the world; supports the development of new work by South Florida-based artists; and offers educational programs for students of every age.
Since our inception, we have reached a diverse cross-section of communities throughout Miami-Dade County with an extensive outreach effort that includes partnerships with other arts organizations, universities and social service agencies. Miami Light Project is a cultural forum to explore some of the issues that define contemporary society.
ABOUT THE LIGHT BOX
The Light Box at Goldman Warehouse was created by Miami Light Project in order to address the needs of our artistic community within the changing cultural landscape of Miami and within the context of an evolving international field of art and culture.
Envisioned as a laboratory for artists and an intimate place of gathering where new work is experienced in its various stages of development, The Light Box will provide a creative setting in which artists are able to intersect with audiences in new ways. Our intent is to create a space where artists have the opportunity to research and make work, explore their artistic disciplines, and hone their unique voices through extended residencies, international cultural exchange, cross disciplinary approaches and the presentation of new work.
Of equal importance in The Light Box concept is the notion that cultural workers, the producers of the new work being developed by artists, will also benefit from increased creativity and productivity by sharing workspace and developing a cooperative work model. We intend to develop alternative approaches to fundraising, audience development and marketing via our collaborative setting.
Annually, The Light Box programming will include open rehearsals; studio performances; informal exhibitions; community participation in the creation of new work; workshops and camps for young people aspiring to careers in the arts; ground-breaking international cultural exchange and research opportunities among and across disciplines. Each organization participating in the sharing of the space will maintain their own distinct artistic profile, and over time, the sum of all these parts will result in a distinct artistic profile for The Light Box at Goldman Warehouse.
The Light Box at Goldman Warehouse is a catalyst for community transformation.
