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.

NAMI Reel Minds Miami Mental Health Film Festival 5/19/19

Donna Shalala Center
1330 Miller Dr.,
Miami, Florida 33146
Website
Cost: $10

NAMI Miami-Dade County expects to attract thousands of people and seat close to 800 people at the 4th Annual Reel Minds Miami Mental Health Film Festival at the University of Miami’s Donna E. Shalala Center on Sunday, May 19, 2019 from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. This year’s festival will showcase six short films. The narratives behind these films will share a range of life experiences meant to inspire, heal, and empower people. Following each short film, an individual with a lived experience of a mental health challenge will speak on the films’ topic for a few minutes providing further insight about the message behind each film.

This year’s lineup is comprised of films from a variety of talented directors, including a member of the International Cinematographers Guild, a multi-award-winning actor and Navy Veteran, and an award-winning filmmaker. The six films were chosen out of almost 200 submissions based on their compelling storytelling and way of educating and dispelling the myth behind mental illness. Submitted films were judged by film makers, clinicians, high school and college students, individuals with mental illness and their family members.

The 2019 lineup includes Terms of Us by director, writer, producer Roberto Sanchez, a Cuban born, Miami raised Navy Veteran who has a recurring role on Queen of the South. Additionally, Roberto will be speaking at the festival; Baby Steps from Los Angeles director, Eric Dyson; Misdirection by Carly Usdin, a University of Central Florida graduate with Miami ties, now an award-winning filmmaker based in Los Angeles; Reverie by Nick Markham; Saving Billy by Vickie Adams; and UkeLayla, directed and produced by a team of recent Miamians and graduates from the University of Central Florida.

“Films are a compelling storytelling form that connects with our deepest sensibilities, and research suggests that film festivals have a positive impact on stigma and recovery in mental illness. That’s why for the fourth consecutive year, NAMI Miami-Dade is showcasing a curated list of short films inspired by the lives of those who have been affected by mental illness,” says Kathryn Coppola, Executive Director at NAMI Miami. “Together, we can spark the awareness that makes the difference in our society.” NAMI Miami’s goal is to “end the silence” and to start the conversation about mental health proving that recovery is possible.

The Tout-Monde Festival is an initiative launched in 2018 by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States of America, in close partnership with the France Florida Foundation for the Arts and French Arts Associates. It is a multidisciplinary contemporary arts festival that creates new opportunities for Caribbean contemporary artists by fostering relations and building long-term partnerships between French Caribbean and other Caribbean artists, academics and cultural institutions in Florida, the United States and the wider Caribbean region.

By doing so, the festival also endeavors to develop the knowledge of future generations about Caribbean culture and to encourage tourism and economic exchange between Florida and the Caribbean. Spanning across all fields — visual and performing arts including music, dance, theatre, film, literature –, the Tout-Monde Festival will present contemporary artistic, cultural and intellectual practices of the greater insular, continental and diasporic Caribbean context.

The Tout-Monde Festival aspires to embody the spirit and philosophy of the “Tout-Monde” – the union of territories, cultures and individuals with multiples roots in one “Whole World” –, a concept introduced by Martinican writer, poet and philosopher Edouard Glissant (1928-2011) in his book Traité du Tout-Monde.

The theme of the 2nd edition, Echo-Natures, aims at deconstructing stereotypes of the Caribbean by exploring the deep characteristics and the essence of the Caribbean through different beings, shapes and environments. Analyzing how these Caribbean Natures, encountered in insular, continental and diasporic contexts, resonate one to another, and with the rest of the world, in reference to the Echo-World of Edouard Glissant.

This edition will take place from March 13 to March 17, 2019 in six key places of Miami art scene: the Koubek Center, the Pérez Art Museum Miami, the Museum of Art and Design @ MDC, the Wolfsonian-FIU, Little Haiti Cultural Complex, and the Institute of Contemporary Art.

Nick, better known as “Damage” on the streets of Miami, is the young leader of an infamous graffiti crew that leaves its mark wherever it goes. As they grow larger in fame and number, problems start arising–Nick’s personal life goes on a downward spiral; the illegal nature of his passion is bound to get him in trouble with the authorities, and, on top of that, he has to learn to fend off the local rival crew.

A local production shot in Miami’s neighborhoods of Wynwood, Little Havana and Little Haiti, Vandal takes the very thrilling world of graffiti art and explores the struggle of street artists to keep their art alive as well as the social backlash that goes hand in hand with pursuing their biggest passion. Director Jose Daniel Freixas, a graffiti artist in his own right since the age of 10, puts his firsthand experience in the world of graffiti to good use by highlighting Miami’s gritty streets as well as its multi-cultural heritage to show a city full of color, life and passion.

Rockers Movement Annual Miami Reggae Festival Returns with Their Vibe, Spirit and Celebration of Oneness — Make Way for the Positive Day as it shines during Winter Music Conference with “One Love” Celebration of Live Performances, Art and Food for Charity.

Miami Reggae Festival offers up an evening of peace, love & unity on Friday March 15th, under the stars at North Beach Bandshell, in Miami Beach, Florida. Patrons will come together to donate food to the less fortunate as part of the admission to the annual festival.

Miami, FL. January 15, 2019 Miami Reggae Festival fuses food, arts and reggae to raise awareness about extreme poverty during the Winter Music Conference for a powerful night of reverence, livity, peace and unity – expanding consciousness through music, food and charity.

Reggae music, a music now recognized as world heritage music by UNESCO (The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) brings together people from all walks of life in the spirit of “One Love” for an evening of sharing in culture and healing.

Miami Reggae Festival expresses the hopes and dreams of a world in which what people have in common is far greater than that which divides. Through the Festival, attendees live not by looking at each other but by looking together in the same direction. Miami Reggae Festival unifies Miami’s diverse community to aid Dade County residents living in poverty. Music has always had the power to unite and inspire humanitarianism. “The Miami Reggae Festival takes it to the top, offering the highest quality of performance, socio-political ambience and service to community available anywhere. Past festivals has featured the likes of: Stephen and Damian Marley, Bunny Wailer, Steel Pulse, Toots & The Maytals, Cultura Profética, Morgan Heritage, Midnite, Gondwana, Natiruts, Tiken Jah Fakoly and Luciano to name a few.

This year Miami Reggae Festival is headlined by the legendary Roots band from St. Croix Akae Beka (formerly Midnite), Akae Beka is the current manifestation of an evolving consciousness. As it is written in The Word, much like the archangel Michael who was responsible for the truths pertaining to the secrets of creation, so does lead singer Vaughn Benjamin today accept his role in a parallel time of rampant deception and broken taboos in the arenas of world leadership. Always rooted firmly in the teachings of His Imperial Majesty, Emperor Haile Selassie I, he says: “my personal evolution and reaffirmed purpose is manifested in this newly declared name from the Book of Enoch: Akae Beka, a sacred oath described therein, the Akae, the Beka, one and the same.”

Also performing from Jamaica; Jah9 and the Dub Treatment, deeply mystical, Jah9 has emerged from a chrysalis of poetry, dub and spirit to become a powerful femiNINE energy within a universal grassroots movement of consciousness. Inspired by the open spaces in the instrumental dub of 1970’s Jamaican roots music, Jah9 sings with a voice that belies the dimensions of her physical body, from a soul much older than its current vessel; “reminiscent of that darkly operatic wailer for truth & justice, Nina Simone.” Her philosophy–profoundly spiritual, and her style–Jazz on Dub.

Miami based Rhythm Flow, zen trance dub will pulse through the crowd, raising the vibration as Colombian Zurich Based DJ Nurstacris maintains the positive vibes throughout the night. Continuing the tradition of collecting non-perishable food items to distribute to those in need, the Miami Reggae Festival partners with Miami charity Hecho en Casa, Visual art displayed echoes sentiments felt throughout the human experience and plant-based and cruelty-free dishes complement the compassionate atmosphere.

Founder, Alfonso D’Niscio Brooks, says: ”Rockers Movement started with an obligation to do something good, and to affect people positively. The ways in which people can have a positive effect are limitless. By working together people transform communities, the environment and lives, being a part of the how and why.”

Miami Reggae Festival has also joined the rally to raise awareness about the positive impact and benefits of the gift cannabis, the plant for the mind, body and spirit. Music and herb just go together. In the spirit of unity Miami Reggae Festival producers found it necessary to be a part of this rally. In the challenging economic climate today, people know now more than ever the need for a positive vibration. Brother Bob Marley said: “Herb is the healing of the nation”. So come and join in a day of good vibes and let’s get together and feel alright, remember together WE ARE ROCKERS!

Miami Reggae Festival takes place on Friday, March 15, 2019 from 5-11pm at the North Beach Bandshell, 7275 Collins Ave. Miami Beach, FL 33141.

Tickets are $22 in advance plus two non-perishable food items for entry.
