By the age of 30, the average woman is charged $40,000 because of the Pink Tax. European Wax Center is joining forces with the community of Miami in generating awareness to #AxElPinkTax throughout the month of April. The Pink Tax is the extra $1,351 that the average woman is charged every year for everyday products and services… just because it is for women!

With their efforts to bring these extra costs to light, Miami based artist Claudia La Bianca created a mural in Wynwood showcasing a set of pink and blue wings, with a price disparity, highlighting the price differences in men’s and women’s products to create must-share moments for the community. To put their money where their mouth is, European Wax Center will be paying the female artist $1,351 more than quoted, paying back an average year’s worth of The Pink Tax.

10 Days of Connection is a community-led initiative to promote kindness and inclusion in Miami-Dade and Broward counties. From May 1-10, participants are invited to attend connection experiences hosted by more than 100 local organizations, and are challenged to step outside of their comfort zone to forge new connections across lines of difference.

In recent years, people have become increasingly divided across lines of difference. Incidents of hate have increased, and tolerance for differing ideas has decreased. For ten days each year, we challenge the entire community to break down silos and engage in acts of connection, to build empathy, to increase understanding, and to refocus on our shared humanity.

Join in! Our community will be stronger when we all commit to focusing on what unites us instead of what divides us. A full calendar of events is available at http://bit.ly/ConnectionEvents2019.

Join the conversation by following @ConnectMiami on Facebook, @10dofc on Twitter and Instagram, and by using the hashtag #10DaysOfConnection to share your experience. Learn more at.

Who: rácket, a new upscale bar and lounge located in the heart of Wynwood, brought to the neighborhood by the same team behind Miami Beach’s Drunken Dragon and Foxhole Bar, Homecookin’ Hospitality Group. rácket features two indoor and one outdoor room with unique environments and bar concepts for an elevated experience. El Sexto, meaning The Sixth (a poetic reference to the controversial five spies/“heroes” of Fidel Castro released by the US after the thaw) is a Cuban artist and social activist. El Sexto is arguably the most important dissident visual artist in Cuba today. El Sexto, also known as David Maldonado Machado joins forces with racket

What: Being located in the most artistic, culturally dynamic neighborhood, rácket holds high devotion to the art community. The eclectic venue is pleased to welcome Cuban artist El Sexto, also known as Danilo Maldonado Machado, to rácket’s weekly Homecookin’ party as a pre-Independence Day celebration.

The event will revolve around El Sexto’s live painting performance, which will transcend the radical Cuban politics with infectious energy, humor and freedom. His art breaks down barriers with its humane expressiveness and universal appeal, but goes far beyond the dichotomy of political systems. With the state of our country’s human rights cloudiness, El Sexto represents freedom of expression through his art, a nonviolent form of activism. Art is a universal language that unites humans from all different backgrounds with one common ground, creativity. Attendees will be able to meet the artist as he will be present throughout the night. El Sexto’s art on view will be for sale. In addition to his visual presentation, ladies drink free from 11:00 pm to 1:00 am, and snacks will be served throughout the night by Homecookin’ host since 1995, Shelley Novak.

About the Artist: El Sexto, also known as Danilo Maldonado Machado, is considered Cuba’s number one dissident artist. His dramatic exhibition was featured on every major outlet including The New York Times. Since 2008, he has not only brought his unique form of graffiti across the streets, alleys and decaying buildings of Havana, but has managed to produce an amazing body of paintings under increasingly intolerable conditions. Painter, graffiti artist, performance artist, master draftsman, dissident, pacifist, Havel Prize laureate, political philosopher and social media phenomenon: El Sexto is also a hero. He reconciles his life and his art, both showman and shaman. Above all, El Sexto’s essential medium is freedom and the world is his studio – even prison. His very name, El Sexto (“The Sixth” in Spanish) is a direct reference to the Cuban Five who were elevated to national heroes by Castro’s propaganda machine in 2014, after being released from a US prison on charges of spying. Now free and working in Miami, El Sexto is highly recognized and admired for his work, and prompts the public to share his stellar journey.

Small businesses, retailers, manufacturers and designers across the United States and Latin America will get a boost for the summer when the Apparel Textile Sourcing Miami (ATS-M) trade show- a one-of-a-kind event- expands to Miami in May.
A comprehensive trade show and conference, ATS-M will take place May 21-23, 2018, at the Mana Wynwood Convention Center in Miami. The event will bring to Florida hundreds of international apparel and textile manufacturers from China, India, Bangladesh, the U.S., Turkey, Pakistan, Mexico and many other countries and territories from across Central and South America and all around the globe.
Moishe Mana, Miami-based billionaire developer and CEO of Mana Group said, “We are committed to making Miami the nexus for commerce between Asia, North America, and Latin America.” He continued, “We’re excited to have ATS Miami join this initiative as the fashion and apparel industry is one of our core verticals.”
The ATS brand has established itself internationally with Apparel Textile Sourcing Canada, held every August in Toronto. In 2017 the event grew by more than 50% in attendees and international exhibits. The same formula of success is the basis for ATS-Miami.
Next to the hundreds of manufacturers’ booths and exhibits, ATS-Miami will deliver 3-days-worth of an unprecedented platform of global connections in manufacturing and fashion.
Attendees will gain new insights and information to best navigate and profit in the international sourcing process
Featured focus on Manufacturer Transparency, Speed & Responsiveness + benefits of Near Sourcing Americas
“The expansion of the ATS Brand to Miami is a direct response to the market demand and fills a significant gap for the US-&-Latin American markets,” said Jason Prescott, CEO of JP Communications, organizer of the event and parent-company to toptenwholesale.com and manufacturer.com, the most expansive network of business-to-business sourcing platforms in the U.S. Millions of international members use these brands to locate wholesalers and manufacturers.
“ATS-Miami provides a unique opportunity for apparel and textile importers and retailers to intersect and access the most current importing information from the top industry insiders. Imagine the time and money saved for the local and Latin importers. The producers are coming from Asia to Miami,” Prescott said, emphasizing that China alone exports $42 billion in apparel a year to the US and $11 billion a year to Latin America.
Clay Hickson, VP Strategy & Business Development with Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) said, “The team at Apparel Textile Sourcing puts on great events and we’re excited to partner with them again in Miami. We have partnered with ATS since the launch of the first event in Toronto, which has quickly grown to be an important apparel and fashion industry event in North America.”
ATS-M will feature three days-worth of seminars, panels and runway shows featuring acclaimed industry and government experts, covering topics from trade agreements to best practices with an eye on the changing Latin American market, as well as tips on how to choose overseas producers, plus new approaches on succeeding in the U.S. market.
“The ATS-Miami design pods and fashion show will include International apparel producers, Latin American artisans, Made-in-Americas manufacturers and active design students,” said Apparel Textile Sourcing Director John Banker. “The runway at ATSM will knock the socks off of summer fashion!”
ATS-M will also feature:
A “Made in USA” Pavilion, showcasing US-based manufacturers who source apparel and textiles from abroad for their finished goods, as well as US designers who have their designs produced into finished products overseas.
The Americas Pavilion featuring products from Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Ecuador, Nicaragua, El Salvador, and more.
A Summer 2018 Apparel and Textile Trends display, providing a first-hand look at the colors, patterns and textures that will be all the rage for the summer nights in Miami.

Cost: $15 general admission; $5 students with ID; free to MDC students.

Who put the gold in the Golden Age? Bride of the White Widow, a multi-media event by performance art collective My Barbarian (Malik Gaines, Jade Gordon, and Alexandro Segade), playfully –and critically–wrestles with this question in a surreal, post-colonial tale about the doomed crew of the White Widow, seventeenth century Dutch sailors lost in the so-called New World. A show within a show, Bride of the White Widow is an interactive play, exploring contemporary issues of cultural appropriation, globalism, and environmental collapse through song, dance, and games with the audience. A restaging of My Barbarian’s Voyage of the White Widow, originally commissioned by De Appel, Amsterdam, in 2006, and included in Performa 02 at the Whitney Museum, New York, the performance at the Light Box in Miami explores My Barbarian’s sixteen-year journey as a performance collective. Working at the intersection of visual art, theater, and critical practice, My Barbarian uses performance to theatricalize social problems and imagine ways of being together. Founded in Los Angeles in 2000, the group’s work moves through different modes that prepare for, present, and represent live performance: music composition, plays, and other texts; costumes, masks, puppets and sets; video; and drawings and prints. The group has performed and exhibited widely while maintaining a focus on the provocation of theatricality in the visual-art context. My Barbarian has been included in the Whitney Biennial, two Performa Biennials, two California Biennials, the Montreal Biennial, and the Baltic Triennial.

The new venue is located directly over the Venetian Causeway and MacArthur Causeway just east of Biscayne Boulevard. The location of the 2nd Annual Miami Beach Jewelry & Watch Show will offer an unprecedented level of convenience with plenty of accessible parking, hotels, and restaurants in the immediate area. The luxurious waterfront tent will also add to the shows’ exceptional ambience as visitors browse through more than 100 international dealer booths.
“We are so excited to bring the Miami Beach Jewelry & Watch Show to the City of Miami and we are confident our community of collectors and exhibitors will be delighted with this change,” said Andrea Canady, Show Director of the Palm Beach Show Group.
The 2018 show is set to provide an extraordinary showcase for leading jewelry and watch dealers from around the world. Collectors and dealers can expect a selection of the world’s top jewelers specializing in a mix of antique and estate jewelry, vintage pieces, modern collections and fabulous watches unmatched by any other show in the country.
Aside from the rare diamonds and unique time pieces at the show, the waterfront locale is set to give the exhibition a newfound and luxurious ambiance along with unparalleled convenience.
Downtown Miami was recently recognized as one of the top four fastest growing neighborhoods in the US with projects such as Miami World Center bringing tens of thousands of new residents to the area. Millennial professionals are attracted to the nightlife, restaurants and shopping.
Parking and transportation options at the new location provide more options than ever before with multiple general parking garages within one city block, walking distance with more than 4,000 combined parking spots.

Bubbles, Michael Jackson’s Chimp, Really Does Paint!

Miami, June 8, 2017: After great success at Art Basel 2012, the paintings by Michael Jackson’s chimpanzee, Bubbles, and many others will be on display for 10 days at Frames USA & Art Gallery in Miami. The opening reception will be on July 21, 2017 from 6pm-10pm where the public can view and purchase a very unique piece of original ape art.

“Purchasing a piece of original art by apes is a collectible. It creates conversation, it is a form of expression, and it is rare”, Adam Brand says, owner of Frames USA. “Not to mention that the proceeds from the sales of the art will go to an amazing cause”

Over the years, zoos and sanctuaries have dabbled into selling artwork at their gift shops by resident animals to raise money. However, the purpose of this art show, Apes that Paint, extends beyond that. It seeks to establish the fact that apes are artists without judgment and second that these ape artists are contributing to the fundraising efforts for The Center for Great Apes, located in Wauchula, Florida.

Aside from artworks from our star artist Bubbles, the exhibition will host other wonderful original pieces from celebrity apes. Among them, the art of chimpanzees from Planet of the Apes, and orangutans from the movie Going Apes, and NBC’s soap opera Passions. The crowd will enjoy complimentary food and wine sponsored by Carolina Ale House and a limited-edition gift with their RSVP to the event. For free admission and gift, RSVP at http://www.framesusamiami.com/frames-usa-events-1.html by July 18.

Come experience this unique art show and take an exciting piece home that will marvel friends and family, and learn about a sanctuary that helps protect chimpanzee and orangutans.

Looking for a new home this summer? We Florida Financial wants to help consumers save time and money with its free Home Buyers Summer Seminar Series. Gain the knowledge and confidence to make the best home buying decisions for you and your family by attending one of the free seminars taking place on June 11 in Lauderdale Lakes, June 21 at the Biscayne branch, June 25 in Lauderhill and July 20 at the North Miami branch.

According to statistics compiled by the website mymovingreviews.com, summer is a popular time to move because of preferable weather. It’s a great time for families to explore neighborhoods and make friends before the school year starts. Plus, many sellers who haven’t sold homes put on the market in spring are willing to sell for less during the summer. Over half of all moves (61.5%) in 2015 were made during the months of May through September with the busiest day in the moving industry being July 31. The state of Florida also ranked as number two in the nation for the highest number of local moves.

“Now is the time to buy before interest rates rise and We Florida Financial credit union services wants to help consumers save time and money for this important life purchase,” said Lloyd Gill, president and CEO of We Florida Financial. “We Florida Financial has mortgage programs for the modern buyer with low rates, affordable monthly payments and no Florida intangible tax. We encourage South Florida residents to attend one of our free Home Buyers Summer Seminars to get the most out of their home-buying experience.”

Miami, Fl. Portugal Tropical is an art exhibition that brings to Miami an approach to the work of three prominent Portuguese contemporary artists, who carry out their artistic views in different expressive ways but are bounded by the exoticism and sensuality of the tropics. A selection of paintings by Pedro Calapez, landscapes by Monica Miranda and ceramic sculptures by Maria Ana Vasco Costa are the core of the exhibition curated by Alda Galsterer and Veronica de Mello in Merzbau Gallery (Wynwood, Miami) from June 9th.
Calapez’ color palette proposes an approach to the tropics with expressive and dynamic lines, from the perspective of this Lusitanian artist. Meanwhile, the photographic images of landscapes delicately embroidered by Miranda offers a reading through a visual fabric that unites tropical wild nature, with a human hand holding the knitting needle. The subtle strength of Vasco Costa ceramics, remembers us that tropics also has an urban side that lives in a symbiotic way with forests, mountains and rivers.
The confluence of these artistic proposals, bonded together with an organic line by the curators, parts by the influence that Portugal receives from the tropics since years ago: music, food, dances and traditions from Africa and America, part of this country’s memories, enriched and nourished. Portuguese contemporary artists can prove it.
For Arsen Wannissian and Glauco Avila, both founders and directors of Merzbau Gallery hosting this exhibition felt very natural, but was always a very important project to achieve. Merzbau is a space dedicated to showcase an innovative program that promotes diversity in the arts, as an intense cultural exchange in our city. The exhibition is presented in partnership with REDE, a contemporary art agency that works within the artistic community in countries such as, Angola, Brazil, Cabo Verde, Macau, Mozambique, São Tome and Principe, bringing a new perspective in the art market. Merzbau has been positioned as an international platform for curatorship and artists all over the world.
Miami, known as a cultural melting pot, seems to be the right stage for this exhibition. “We hope our city received this proposal with enthusiasm, and take this unique opportunity to see the tropical light through the eyes of these talented Portuguese artists” Wannissian said.

3rd Annual Filmgate Interactive 2/20/16 – 2/28/16

3rd Annual Filmgate Interactive
February 20 – 28, 2016

FilmGate Interactive, the U.S.A.’s only Immersive Media Conference, returns for its third year with more than 20 screenings, 6 performances, 5 interactive exhibits and 15 workshops, which explore the intersection of film, technology and interactive storytelling.

The FilmGate Interactive Conference will take place from February 20 to 28, 2016 at prime arts locations throughout Miami Beach and Miami, Florida. Over 5,000 production professionals and enthusiastic amateurs, are anticipated to attend this year’s conference and their goal is to learn, showcase their work, and develop new content through immersive and interactive techniques – an approach that recognizes the changing landscape of entertainment and storytelling, and produces a more cohesive and rewarding audience experience.

Under the helm of Executive Director Diliana Alexander, the FilmGate Interactive conference aims to engage viewers in the creative process while also providing production professionals, filmmakers, videographers, gamers, coders, writers, photographers, story architects, marketing and advertising creatives and technophile audiences with access to experts and state-of-the-art tools to craft their own projects.

FilmGate Interactive answers the question of how new technology is influencing the future of entertainment, art and digital storytelling. We called the Conference, FilmGate to pay homage to our roots—the capturing of that moment, when film passed through the gate and is illuminated—but there is hardly any film left in today’s reality. We live in a digital world with ever-changing technological landscape and our programming and learning environments reflect that – Diliana Alexander

In a nod to the Hispanic creative and new technology communities from Central and South America and the Caribbean, an important aspect of conference programming embedded since its launching has been to represent diversity and emerging markets. At this year’s Conference, FilmGate Interactive will feature immersive media creators from Brazil and Colombia. “South Florida’s unique socio-cultural demographic and proximity to Latin America and the Caribbean have positioned Miami Beach and Miami as an international destination for arts, development and increasingly, technology,” said Alexander. “There is a tangible shift in the region’s identity as one poised for opportunity and growth.”

Program highlights include:
The Interactive Tech Playground
The Interactive Tech Playground is a curated fair with 30 selected exhibitors offering innovative products (cameras, lights, cranes, lenses, gaming software, apps, video equipment, etc.) and services.  Spanning over more than 8,000 square-feet at the historic Deauville Beach Resort, the Interactive Tech Playground was designed to be a platform to connect trade and consumer audiences to the advances in new technology, from startups to blue chip companies.
The Playground will feature the FilmGate Center Stage, an area for live presentations and an interactive set with live actors, where anyone can “play” with the gear on display.
We welcome new editions to the program: cinematic camera manufacturers RED Digital and Blackmagic. SONY will return with a workshop on High Dynamic Range for Content Production and Distribution, How to get the best imagery from the PMW-F55 and PMW-F5 motion picture cameras and a Miami specific workshop involving underwater videography and photography. Past participants have included Panasonic, Canon, Arri CSC, Kessler Cranes, Schneider Optics, Manfrotto, Dodo Case, Nauticam and Cinedrones, among others.

Interactive Screenings
Manual Cinema’s LULA DEL RAY is the story of a lonely adolescent girl who lives with her mother on the outskirts of a vast satellite array in the middle of the desert, and is performed with overhead projectors, shadow puppets, actors in silhouette, and live music. Set in the mid-century American Southwest, the project is inspired by the music of Hank Williams, Roy Orbison, and Patsy Cline. 
Katerina Cizek’s THE UNIVERSE WITHIN, the final chapter of the Digital Emmy award-winning series HIGHRISE, poses the questions, as cities reach for the sky, how do we engage with our loved ones over the worldwide web? How has this reality rewired our brains? The project was created for the National Film Board of Canada.
DO NOT TRACK, directed by Brett Gaylor and co-produced by Upian, Arte, the National Film Board of Canada, is a personalized documentary series about privacy and the web economy.
AFTER THE STORM, directed by Andrew Grace and for the first time jointly launched on line by PBS’s Independent Lens and the Washington Post, is an interactive documentary, which tells the story of what happened after a half-mile wide tornado plowed through the middle of Tuscaloosa, a small southern college town in central Alabama, after the storm passed, the media left town, and after the adrenaline subsided.
THE STORY OF THE STAFF, a web documentary by Ashley Maynor, an investigation into America’s obsession with temporary memorials. It tracks what happens to more than half a million letters, 65,000 teddy bears, and hundreds of thousands of other packages, donations, and condolence items sent to Newtown, Connecticut, in the wake of the Sandy Hook school shooting.

Interactive Exhibits
Nonny de la Pena and her Emblematic Group team will present ONE DARK NIGHT, a Trayvon Martin VR Reenactment. The near constant flow of news detailing yet another shooting death of a black person by U.S. police officers may eventually dull the shock for some observers, but what if you could relive the incidents reported as if you were there? This is a data driven, immersive virtual reality reenactment of the February 2012 Florida shooting death of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman.  
DISCLOSE MIAMI, a participatory, slow, immersive sound and sight installation, designed for relaxation, conversation and creative production, will be created by Billy Wrasnik, Emily Ferrier and a team of creative technologists in real time during the Conference, It will stitch together the sounds and sights captured by the participants of the SOUND FOR THE NEW MEDIA FRONTIER workshop, being held at the conference prior to the event.

Workshops
IMMERSIVE MEDIA MASTER CLASS with Katerina Cizek: An innovative storyteller who works across many media platforms, Katerina Cizek created the seven year long, multi-media project HIGHRISE for the National Film Board of Canada. The project won the 2011 Digital Emmy award in the non-fiction category for digital programs.
Sound designer and classically trained musician Billy Wirasnik will lead a SOUND FOR THE NEW MEDIA FRONTIER workshop, which will present practical answers the question of what can be done to incorporate thoughtful, meaningful use of sound. Attendees of the workshop will use the medium of Slow TV, an emerging genre of observational films, as a vessel of exploring sound and patient filmmaking.
The Brazilian #EraTransmidia group, will teach a Multi Audience Multi Platform workshop (MAMP), which will utilize real cases and hands on activities, to create story worlds.

Interactive Events

ZICA AND THE CHAMELEONS, created for Nickelodeon Brazil by CinemaAnimadores, is an immersive TV show about a not-so-typical teenager, who relates to the world through her art. The event, designed for grade and high school students, will include a live experience and live music.

Best Of N.O.L.A.
“I’m Not Gonna Move to L.A.” (N.O.L.A.) is a monthly event that for the last three years has screened local shorts made in Florida under the same roof at independent art house O Cinema.  After a Q & A and rapid-fire trivia, the audience is asked to vote for their favorite film using some unorthodox devices. In a culmination of N.O.L.A. all-stars, the winners of the past months have been invited to O Cinema Miami Beach for a chance to win the grand prize, the Pink Kraken.

All screenings, installations and workshops are suitable to all skill levels and high school students.

About Historic Virginia Key Beach:

2015 marks the 70th year Anniversary of the Historic Virginia Key Beach Park. In the 40’s, 50’s & 60’s Virginia Key Beach located on the island of Virginia Key, was designated as a unique vacation spot strictly for blacks. Located in Dade-County, this beach was the answer (for people of color) to South Florida’s whites-only beaches pre-1960’s Civil Rights. By 1979, Virginia Key Beach had been transferred to the City of Miami and was transformed into park status. Then in 1982 the park closed and was left abandoned until 2008. During the nearly 20 years of abandonment, the Virginia Key Beach Park Trust was formed and the park saw life again! This committee of dedicated people achieved getting the park placed on the National Register of Historic Places and the Florida Historic Marker. This “Paradise Renewed” is also designated as a Historic Site by the Miami Historic & Environmental Preservation Board! Today, Historic Virginia Key Beach Park is an anchor in the rebirth of the beautiful natural island of Virginia Key, “Miami’s Central Park”!

Tiger Direct Tech Bash 2014 at Marlins Park on Friday, November 7, 2014.

“The TigerDirect Tech Bash aims to reach a young professional consumer and business executive audience. This end-user facing, pre-holiday showcase will include the top premier brands in the consumer electronics industry, local tech start-ups, and the Miami business community.”

HISTORY

“In November 2012, the inaugural Tech Bash was held to celebrate the launch of Windows 8 and the new OEM computer lines with an interactive, food and drink fueled party with over 4,000 attendees.

In May 2013, a “Tech Summit” was held in conjunction with a traditional training symposium, showcasing 50 vendors in a tradeshow format with over 1,500 business and consumer attendees. Light fare and cocktails plus various activities in tow.

Our customers desire for more tech events in South Florida, combined with the ever-changing face of consumer electronics, we determined that a combination of the two would provide a great customer experience. Our vendors showcasing the latest in technology, interactive displays, an integration of music & art, as well as other emerging technologies.”
