Miami Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs has obscurely neglected the South Dade Arts Community. For years, we the people have produced shows at churches and in the auditoriums of schools, and now, as of 2010-2011, the Cultural Affairs Council has finally begun to offer the arts to the South Dade Community. We applaud them in their efforts by introducing, modern dance, and contemporary ballet; however, cultural dancing is needed. We have been underprivileged in the arts for over 15 years. The community has stalked BET and MTV for ground-breaking and fashionable dance moves and music. The Diaspora is a part of our everyday life and needs to be a part of the South Miami Dade Cultural Arts Center as well. The limitation in offering just contemporary ballet, and modern dance, will cause the community to revolt. If the Miami Dade Cultural Affairs Department was not concerned with bringing in art before the Cultural Arts Center was built; what makes the labors of the Council’s work they are producing now bona fide and beneficial to the community. Again, we applaud them in their efforts, thus we the people want more!

 

This petition has been started to make sure all people and communities of South Dade are involved and actively participating in the programs that will be available at the Cultural Art center.

As of today, there aren’t any cultural venues to accommodate the community request for the arts. The South Dade area has been deprived their privileges in arts education and it is time the arts take responsibility in changing lives and mending communities where it has been torn. In order for the arts to play an imperative position in the South Dade Community, the arts have to relate to the people of the community, as a whole. Based upon research, Cutler Bay, Goulds, Homestead, Florida City, Perrine, Naranja, Princeton, Richmond Heights population is more than 75% Black and Hispanic. In order to get the community involved, the Cultural Affairs Council has to find a way to connect with the people of South Dade. Our voice matters and should be heard. Since we have been impoverished our rights to the arts, we the people feel we need the arts to recollect and refurbish what is left of our South Dade Cities. With deepest regards, I hope the council has investigated the area and has really seen the aspiration and crisis of the community and have native artists on board to help promote and facilitate the community needs.

 

ALL ART FORMS SHOULD BE WELCOME AND ADVERTISED TO THE PUBLIC. IF BALLET AND MODERN CAN BE PRESENTED IN A PRESS RELEASE, SO SHOULD ETHNIC DANCE.

 

 This petition is not against the Miami Dade Cultural Affairs Department, or the South Miami Dade Cultural Arts Center. Our concerns are the people of South Dade who have been deprived their rights to the arts.

 

Thanks,

DanceDances
