Engaging Latinos and GLBTQ community through Performing Arts

Via FUNDarte, Inc.

Goal

To engage South Florida’s GLBTQ youth through the arts by growing the annual Out in the Tropics Performing Arts Festival to include educational workshops in high schools and community centers

With challenge funding, FUNDarte will enhance its Out in the Tropics festival, the city’s first contemporary performing art series specifically representing the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer community. The series brings to Miami world-class GLBTQ performing artists who address broad gender and social issues while raising awareness of GLBTQ issues among the general public. With new funding, FUNDarte will expand educational opportunities by selecting visiting artists to provide workshops, artist talks and panel discussions at high schools and community centers.

FUNDarte is a multidisciplinary nonprofit organization dedicated to producing, presenting and promoting music, theater, dance, film and visual arts that speak to Miami’s diverse cultures with an emphasis on Hispanic arts and culture.
