To create a conscious platform for discourse related to arts and culture in the Miami area. To provide conscious, non-sexist, non-carnist, non-speciest, non-racist, healthy life-loving spaces and venues for the expression of art during the cultural evolution. We are chronicling the scene in an important time-the Miami Renaissance, during the Anthropocene, when humans effect on the planet is starting to become clear, especially in our city, and a shift to a plant-based diet is essential for our survival.
Miami Chronicles is an online arts magazine I founded in May 2017 for The Miami Chronicles Corporation, a non-profit organization whose mission is to support the arts for cultural evolution in the community. The magazine will provide a platform of expression, inspiration, and news-sharing for local artists and cultural engineers. Miami has many talented positive creative individuals including poets, writers, performers, dancers, visual artists, fashion designers, photographers, chefs, activists and musicians. Most of the local media outlets focus on mainstream news and often overlook talent for sensationalism. It is important for them to have a platform to showcase their work because seeing other artists create provides one with the fuel to continue creating.
It is even more important to have safe, non-sexist, non-racist, nurturing and healthy environments in the community where all people, male and female, can explore their creativity. Other creative outlets and venues promote sexism, carnism, and unhealthy predatory environments, especially for women. Our mission is also to create spaces that honor all persons, their bodies, and Mother Nature so that conscious creative people of all different types can build a community that is committed to moving Miami forward.
Cultural programming in the form of open mic events, conscious dining parties, zine publishing and art exhibits for fundraising is also part of the organization’s mission.
