Artists Daniel Boyd and Andros Zins-Browne join curators Asad Raza and Rina Carvajal to consider ideas that underlie MOAD’s new exhibition Where the Oceans Meet. How have Lydia Cabrera and Édouard Glissant’s writings and methodologies influenced practices in contemporary art and curation? How do notions the two Caribbean writers explored (such as globality, creolization, and cosmology) help us make sense of historic narratives and our contemporary moment? What does it mean to think, live, and act where the oceans meet.

This event inaugurates the Museum of Art and Design at MDC’s new exhibition, Where the Oceans Meet (May 26 to September 29, 2019) curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Asad Raza, Gabriela Rangel, and Rina Carvajal. Where the Oceans Meet is an exhibition of modern and contemporary art that resonates with the pioneering thought of two Caribbean writers, Lydia Cabrera and Édouard Glissant. The international group of thirty-eight artists and collectives in the exhibition considers notions of shifting and porous borders—geographic, national, cultural, social, racial, ethnic, and linguistic—and how crossing borders has shaped our world.

Frontline communities in South Florida have been fighting against exploratory oil drilling in the Everglades for years. Now the stakes are even higher: the case against Kanter Real Estate has made its way to Florida’s Supreme Court, and we have to take urgent action to stop them.

With Kanter doubling down on its efforts to drill in the Everglades, we’re not backing down or going away. In fact, we’re doubling down too: getting ready to fight harder and smarter, training, connecting, and growing the fossil fuel resistance right here in our community.

That’s why the Promise to Protect Training Tour is coming to Miami. The Promise to Protect was originally created to resist the Keystone XL pipeline, but now the promise has expanded nationwide to inspire organizers like us fighting for the Everglades in South Florida to stand up and refuse fossil fuel projects from entering our backyard.

Can you join us for one of the upcoming trainings?

The Promise to Protect Training Tour is an opportunity for us to learn from Indigenous leadership on how we can protect our threatened environment and frontline communities from toxic and destructive extraction that does nothing but harm people and our planet.

This training will share knowledge from Indigenous leaders on the frontlines of the Keystone XL fight that can share best practices on how we can unite to fight for the Everglades. You’ll learn about nonviolent direct action, support roles that make nonviolent direct action possible, protocols for mobilizing in Lakota territory, and how to carry this work forward as we challenge the higher court officials.

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

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.

Elizabeth Smart, international child abduction advocate and New York Times best-selling author, will be the keynote speaker for Child Rescue Coalition’s (CRC) fourth annual “Eat, Drink and Be Giving” Gala. Proceeds from the evening will enhance Child Rescue Coalition’s technological developments, increase law enforcement training and rescue thousands of children from sexual exploitation and abuse.

The abduction of Elizabeth Smart was one of the most followed child abduction cases of our time. Despite this traumatic experience, she has become an advocate for change related to child abduction, recovery programs and national legislation. The founder of the Elizabeth Smart Foundation, Smart has also helped promote The National AMBER Alert, The Adam Walsh Child Protection & Safety Act and other safety legislation to help prevent abductions. She chronicled her experiences in the New York Times best-selling book, “My Story.” In addition, she and other abduction survivors worked with the Department of Justice to create a survivors’ guide, entitled, “You’re Not Alone: The Journey from Abduction to Empowerment.” Her most recent book, “Where There’s Hope,” is both an up-close-and-personal glimpse into her healing process and a heartfelt how-to guide for readers to make peace with the past and embrace the future.

Sponsored by TransUnion, the evening will celebrate law enforcement officers’ successful utilization of Child Rescue Coalition’s Child Protection System (CPS) Technology, with an elegant dinner, awards presentation and exciting live and silent auctions. To date, CRC’s CPS Technology is used free of charge by more than 11,000 law enforcement officials in 50 states and 90 countries and has been instrumental in helping to put an end to child sexual abuse. Child Rescue Coalition has assisted in the arrest of over 11,000 child predators and the rescues of over 2,500 abused children in the last five years.

First-Ever Event Presented By NATPE In Association With The NAACP And The NHFA

“Living the Dream: A Career in Content” Featuring Esai Morales, Gloria Calderon Kellett, Benjamin Lobato and more in Miami on January 21, 2019

LOS ANGELES, CA (October 9, 2018) – NATPE, the National Association of Television Program Executives, will present the first ever “Living the Dream: A Career in Content” event in partnership with the NAACP, (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) and the NHFA (National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts). The event will be held on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Monday, January 21, 2019, one day before NATPE Miami 2019 commences, at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach Florida.

The special event is designed to assist students, young professionals and others with a desire to enter the entertainment and media industries to learn more about how their dreams can become a reality. Both the NHFA and the NAACP are committed to raising awareness of diversity and inclusion in front and behind the camera as well as in all creative content with the overall mission to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination. The organizations both have programs to inspire today’s youth and are committed to furthering awareness of multi-cultural content, diversity in media, and inspiring youth to follow their dreams.

World-renowned producer, director, actor and screenwriter Tyler Perry, will deliver the Keynote Address. Mr. Perry is an outstanding example of an individual who began his career with very little and through extraordinary talent and dedication has risen to the top of the industry in all areas of his multi-talented skills. Mr. Perry’s remarks will be followed by a panel headlined by CSI: Los Angeles’ Esai Morales, showrunner for USA’s “Queen of the South”, Benjamin Lobato and Netflix’ “One Day at a Time” showrunner Gloria Calderon Kellett, as well as other leading talent, executives, producers and writers who have imbedded storylines of diversity in their works. The final portion of the day’s presentations will be followed by a “Celebration of Creativity”, in which three pre-selected students will present story ideas dealing with diversity live onstage to a panel of industry-leading development executives. The three budding young filmmakers will be selected from the NAACP’s Hollywood Bureau film education program, which searches the country for talented young people in a variety of disciplines, and the NHFA’s whose PitchDC and PitchNY programs showcase authentic and original content ideas from NHFA student scholars, alumni and associates.

“This will be a very special day. A day to honor Martin Luther King Jr. and to inspire and empower young people as they begin a career in entertainment and media. We are honored to be presenting this event, headlined by Tyler Perry, and in association with two of the most respected organizations in America,” said JP Bommel, President and CEO, NATPE. “I know that those that will attend will be enriched with greater knowledge about the opportunities that lie before them.”

“Martin Luther King, like Cesar Chavez, spent their lives working to become the change they asked us all to become in our beloved country,” said Felix Sanchez, NHFA Chairman and Co-founder, “during these trying times, we look to storytellers to reveal the true narrative of our nation. We applaud NATPE for its leadership to advance these principles.”

“Joining forces with NATPE on Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday is right in line with the efforts we put forth to bring diversity to the forefront of everyone’s minds, especially in the world of entertainment,” said Derrick Johnson, President and CEO, NAACP. “We are honored to bring students together to hear from one of the greatest creative and business minds of our generation in Tyler Perry, and are excited to reveal the rest of the programming, which will feature top talent and executives from television, as we draw closer to the event.”

All proceeds from the event will go to the NATPE Educational Foundation to support educational initiatives. NATPE will invite students from Miami-area universities and high schools who are interested in getting into the entertainment/media business to the event. Industry execs attending NATPE will also be in attendance to network and engage with students. The NATPE Educational Foundation and its programs are focused on creating new professional opportunities for young professionals looking to pursue a career in Hollywood.

Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become immersed in rock and roll for four incredible music-filled days. The fully interactive, participatory camp takes place in a non-competitive atmosphere that welcomes guitar players, bass players, vocalists, drummers and keyboard player at all skill levels ranging from beginner to advanced.

The Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp experience begins the moment of sign-up. After a skill level and musical preferences assessment, fantasy campers are placed in a band with other like-minded, similarly skilled musicians all ready to rock. Whatever their level of proficiency – from lead guitar to rhythm guitar to air guitar – abilities and confidence will grow during rehearsal under the constant guidance of rock star counselors.

These recognized musicians won’t simply coordinate your band, they’ll inspire in a series of intimate master classes on the camper’s chosen instrument, stage presence, and everything rock and roll, along with tales from the road. Our newest class, THE ROUNDTABLE, welcomes campers to bring their original song to work on with our incredibly talented and skilled rock star counselors. Campers will take part in Q&As with headliner and rock star counselors, parties, catering, road crew and more. Ultimately, attendees will practice, show-off skills in front of family and friends at camp, take photos, get memorabilia signed and then jam live, onstage, with Joe Perry of Aerosmith and Jason Bonham.

Spaces are limited and a variety of packages for both musicians and family and friends are available by visiting www.rockcamp.com/fantasy-camp-joe-perry-jason-bonham-2018.php.
