Miami-Dade County remains vigilant in taking measures to stop the spread of COVID-19. As a result, county owned facilities are currently closed, as are theatres, some museums, parks, libraries, and performance spaces throughout Miami-Dade and South Florida.
In light of these cancellations and closings, Culture Shock Miami remains as committed as ever to provide affordable access to arts and culture! Read on for a list of online performances, virtual exhibitions, and on-demand resources that will help you keep the arts alive and well during this time. This list is updated regularly!
