WHO IS MIAMI
April 23, 2022 - August 13, 2022
MAIN LIBRARY // BUS SHELTERS
We call them ordinary people doing extraordinary things. They are of different ages. They are of different cultures and skin colors. They work in different industries. But their truth, wisdom, power, and beauty are in what they believe, what they tell, and what they do for a better world.
“Who Is Miami” is a multimedia storytelling collaboration between Impact.Edition and Good Miami Project to capture the tremendous – and sometimes invisible – efforts of local changemakers fighting for social and environmental justice.
Join activists, foundations, nonprofits, journalists, government officials, locals, and creators for the opening community reception and a special panel on “Narrative for Change.”
Explore the gallery preview of community stories and inspiring photography that will be launched as an out-of-home advertising campaign framed in bus stop shelters across Miami-Dade neighborhoods. Viewers learn more about the changemakers-in-portrait by scanning QR–codes on the artworks.
*The event will start promptly at 3:30 pm with a cocktail hour and opening remarks. Please RSVP by April 1, 2022.
