May Events: Where to Find Us
April 26, 2016
To us, this great city is like a blank canvas where we can splatter our creative juice anywhere we can. Instead of paint, we’re helping spread community, blending it in with the cultural pillars that keep us passionate: music, art, film, etc. The end result is a slew of events and happenings, each chiseled with the tools of love that make us quite proficient in bringing people together…if we do say so ourselves.
Every month, our weeks are filled to the brim with events that we’ve either conceptualized and brought to life, or we’ve joined the team for, helping spread the word throughout the city. People always ask us where we’re at week after week, so take a look at our May calendar across Miami:
