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.

Rácket
150 NW 24th St,
Miami, Florida 33127
Website
Cost: Free

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.

When: Tuesday, July 3rd 2018
Live painting begins at 11:30 pm
Ladies drink free from 11:00-1:00 am

About rácket: Think elegant Wynwood mixed with eclectic entertainment and sophisticated craftsmanship. Upon entering the venue, one is greeted with a covered-atrium featuring a tiki-inspired rum and tequila bar. As you continue into the main room, guests revel around a central sky-lit, live wood-edge, rolled steel island bar. The atrium is artfully decorated with cozy couches and a laid-back ambiance, while the main room represents an electrifying atmosphere with an industrial ceiling, skylights, and great music. rácket offers an ever-evolving experience with each room offering a different environment, as well as a different cocktail menu. The tiki-themed bar in the atrium specializes in tequila, rum and mezcal, with about 100 options to choose from. The main sky-lit island bar offers seasonal ingredient craft cocktails and a selection of neighborhood beers. The bar and lounge has a variety of entertainment including a pool table, a jukebox offering a range of self-select music, and projectors that are dropped to show music videos, sporting games, and more. rácket is open 365 days a year from 1PM to 3AM and offers a daily happy hour from 4PM to 8PM. For more information, visit www.RacketWynwood.com.
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.
