About the speaker
Project 305 is an opportunity for Miamians to share their stories and experiences of life in Miami. By weaving together your stories, we will create Miami’s first crowdsourced symphony and accompanying video — reflecting life in Miami through the lens of its people.
Knight Foundation, New World Symphony and MIT Media Lab invite Miamians everywhere to join the #Project305 movement.
Founded and operated by first-generation American women, Lemon City strives to offer high-quality, ethically-sourced teas inspired by the crazy, complex, diverse, and exciting city we call home: Miami. Lemon City develops and curates its Miami-inspired teas with Latin American, Caribbean and South Floridian flavors in mind. From a complex summery mate, to a mango enhanced black iced tea and our soon-to-be-released signature Cafeci-té, our products proudly showcase this city’s robust culture, vibe and energy.
Our tea leaves and tisanes are sourced from all over the world and we combine these with tropical botanicals, natural herbs, fruits, and essential oils to create teas that are truly inspired. Each sip of Lemon City teas creates a unique experience - we hope you enjoy your moment in the sun.
Masa Madre is a Community Supported Bakery (CSB) based in Miami, FL that provides hand-crafted, naturally leavened sourdough bread. By using responsibly sourced organic ingredients, Masa Madre makes bread that not only tastes better but is healthier for you. A CSB is similar to a CSA, except it’s bread! Your bread share is paid for in full at the beginning of each cycle and you pick up a fresh loaf each week, or every other week, at a predetermined location. A cycle lasts for 1 month (4 weeks). Subscribe to our newsletter to receive a reminder when a new cycle begins.
The New Tropic makes local media and events that help our fellow Miamians explore and connect with the fascinating, lovably eccentric city we call home. You can read a bit more about what we do, and why we do it, in this launch letter.
We publish a daily e-mail newsletter that curates the day’s most important local news and shares original work we make. We produce events, from tours to art lessons to civic forums, that get locals together, exploring with and learning from each other. Our members get access to special content and events, and to a unique community of curious locals who share ideas, inspiration, and opportunities.
What does Miami sound like to you? Look like to you? What sounds and sights represent your idea of home?
Share your impressions of and emotions for Miami by submitting audio and video clips of your life in Miami to the New World Symphony, America’s Orchestral Academy (NWS), as part of Project 305.
Those submissions will be used to compose an orchestral work and accompanying video that will be performed by the New World Symphony.
In capturing the visuals and sounds of Miami, we ask that you draw from your own personal experiences of living in the County. The final work will be reflective of Miami-Dade County as seen through the eyes of you and other Miamians.
