Sponsored by Culture Shock Miami and led by Miami-based creative and educator, Miriam L. King, Courageous Creatives launched this summer as a safe space for young artists between the ages of 16-22 to participate in complex discussions about social justice and to reimagine change through the arts and activism. This cohort of 24 socially-minded artists and future leaders, collaborated over the course of 5 weeks resulting in the creation of a short-film, charting a path of 526 ways to move towards an equitable and just society.
Titled Take Back Time and coordinated to be part of National Arts in Education week, the film will premiere virtually on Wednesday, September 16 at 4pm followed by a moderator-led panel discussion featuring members of the Courageous Creatives cohort and leaders of Miami-Dade cultural organizations.
Join us for the premiere of Take Back Time followed by a moderated panel discussion that will engage current civic leaders and members of the community in conversation with future leaders and policy makers.
