Are your kids or students struggling to get into the school spirit this academic year? Introduce them to the virtual world of enchanting arts, crafts, and jaw-dropping performances with the first ever digital All Kids Included (AKI) Family Arts Festival for children and families with and without disabilities. The South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center (SMDCAC) and the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs are launching this innovative and inclusive virtual event AKI beginning on September 4, 2020.
Inspired by the book, The Boy Who Grew Flowers, by Jennifer Wojtowicz, the theme for this year’s festival is a celebration of courage, difference, and friendship. With more than a dozen exciting videos, students can be part of the fun with interactive art classes, games, book readings, dance performances, music lessons, and so much more. On the Virtual Main Stage, children can even experience a performance of The Boy Who Grew Flowers by the TreeHouse Shakers dance and theater company.
The AKI Digital Family Arts Festival is designed to be inclusive for children and families of all abilities and will be online for several weeks. From magic shows to children’s theatre, AKI has made art accessible to every child with closed captioning, ASL Interpretation, and audio description included for each video.
