To introduce new audiences to Haitian music by expanding the successful, one-year-old Big Night in Little Haiti concert and art series.
To continue the growth of Little Haiti as a cultural and entertainment destination, and to introduce new audiences to Haitian music, The Rhythm Foundation will expand its successful Big Night in Little Haiti monthly concert series. A previous Knight Arts Challenge winner, the project offers free concerts, art exhibits, food and kids activities on the third Friday of each month at the Little Haiti Cultural Center. The growth involves the collaboration of civic, institutional and media partners who can provide additional outreach activities, documentation and broadcast reach, in addition to special events within the series.
Rhythm Foundation is a nonprofit organization celebrating its 24th season of presenting outstanding international artists in South Florida. It is considered the foremost presenter of world music in South Florida – presenting more than 500 concerts, events and festivals by established and innovative artists from around the world.
