Miami Theater Center, The Adrienne Arsht Center, the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs’ South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center (SMDCAC) and Culture Shock Miami Program are thrilled to join forces to form the new Miami-Dade Arts Education Collective and continue providing free and impactful arts experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Collective is committed to providing diverse and high-quality arts programming to students, grades K-12. The Collective seeks to engage students by making arts performances available and accessible during the school year via online/virtual offerings instead of traditional in-person field trips. We have curated a diverse range of artists across multiple disciplines – music, theater, dance, and visual arts.
The Collective is collaborating with the Miami-Dade County Public Schools’ (MDCPS) Cultural Passport Program to provide virtual content to their students. As the fourth largest school system in the nation, MDCPS is comprised of 392 schools and serves 345,000 students. Located at the southern end of the Florida peninsula, the school district stretches over 2,000 square miles of diverse and vibrant communities ranging from rural and suburban to urban cities and municipalities. A truly global community in which district students speak 56 different languages and represent 160 countries.
