About Opa-locka CDC: The Opa-locka Community Development Corporation (OLCDC) was established in November 1980 as a non-profit community development corporation to address the distressed unemployment conditions, particularly in the Opa-locka and North Dade County, Florida, communities. It began addressing conditions through community organizing and soon expanded to provide community services and develop housing. Over time, tackling the area’s lack of affordable housing became OLCDC’s major focus. Since 1980, OLCDC has developed and sold 145 single-family homes to low-to-moderate-income first-time homebuyers and, through partnerships with private developers, has built over 2500 units of rental housing.

About Buskerfest: Buskerfest Miami is a collaborative organization dedicated to improving civic life through public street performance. We strive for a connected, thriving urban core where the streets of Miami are active and enlivened with local performers, enjoyed by people of all ages and walks of life. We envision a joyous place that is reflective of the tropical urban landscape and attractive to locals and visitors alike.

About the River Of Art Program: The River Of Art is a monthly business networker and art showcase combined. We provide more than just a platform for professionals to get together, discuss business strategies and make connections, we create synergies to help promote business by including an amazing art show of local talent!
