About the speaker
So, this is The New Tropic. We’re excited about helping people become better locals. We make local journalism and events that help our fellow Miamians explore and connect with the fascinating, lovably eccentric city we all live in together. You can read a bit more about what we’re doing, and why we’re doing 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.
